Meet Patrick Roche. You probably don’t know very much about Patrick now, but you’ll learn so much about him and his life experiences in this short poem of flashbacks. He covers the past 21 years of his life in reverse – from the tragic death of his alcoholic father backwards towards before he was even born. Thanks to Button Poetry, we will all get a chance to hear and endure the emotionally-stirring journey that young Patrick Roche takes us on from beginning to end. It will truly will bring tears to your eyes and make you think about the relationship you have with your father. Thank you, Patrick Roche, for opening up to millions of strangers with your poem and helping us to learn even more about ourselves along the way.
