Wandering Wounds is an expression of feelings and / or experiences of life's turbulent journey. Pain, anger, and grief mixed with hope are forefront through childhood to adulthood. The poems' presentations differ in styles and formats and many use allegories and / or metaphor to deliver their message.Opening pieces, universal in nature, relate to effects on life, moving through depression, the battle against evil and life's frustrations. The focus then turns to specific causal areas of life's trials and sorrows, such as illness and recovery, physical and sexual abuse of children and adults, and drug and alcohol addiction. Poems will traverse the wondrous mountain peaks and the deepest and darkest gullies of love.Much of the writing contains a morphing quality, as life's circumstances change you will find poems revealing new meaning.James L. Finley's first book Wandering Wounds shines a light upon the hope that resides on the outskirts of "Happiness Falls".

In 409 BC, the Greek historian Herodotus described an Athenian soldier who had no physical battle injuries but suffered permanent blindness after seeing the death of a fellow soldier. It has been reported down through the ages and given a dozen different names from combat stress reaction to the 1,000-yard stare to survivor syndrome. For Sergeant Bryan Hamilton, it would eventually be recognized as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. After serving two combat tours in Vietnam, Bryan Hamilton returns to his small hometown in rural central Pennsylvania in search of some sense of normalcy. Although Bryan believes he is the same quiet, clean-cut young man that departed for military service some three years earlier, his family is increasingly convinced the Bryan they once knew may be gone forever. Bryan's only salvation may be Cindi Roget, the pretty young liberal coed he meets at University Park, the main campus of Penn State University. Although the two have absolutely nothing in common, they fall in love and prove once again the old adage that opposites really do attract. About the Author: R.T.Budd served combat tours in Vietnam with the 1st Air Cavalry Division (Airmobile) and the 23rd Infantry Division (Americal). Forty years later he freely admits that the deepest wounds of war need not be physical. The damage to the psyche may not be visible, but it is just as real as the blood that is spilled. Budd lives with his wife of 38 years near Hershey, Pennsylvania. http: //SBPRA.com/RTBud
