    'This collection of poems is the work of four Aboriginal people... The poems are all personal expressions of emotion that were not originally written for publication.'

    'Many of the poems are about prison life, and reflect the loneliness and despair of the individual. In some of these poems we see the over-riding passions of hatred and bitterness, and in other we see the basic human desire to love and be loved in return...' (Source: Introduction p.3)
