abuse





i see everything

he hits you day in and day out

he tries to control you

you try to make him not shout

you can only do but so much

he says he loves you but don't mean it

you take him back and fall for his tricks

and you need to know that he ain't shit

just listen up and beware

don't fall hard 

and love is not fair

i don't understand why you stay

if he don't treat you right

don't hold him down and don't stay by his side

he doesn't care for you 

why do you care for him?

all he does is hurt you

i hope you understand

just listen to me

listen for once

don't ever say that it's too late

we can stop him 

stop him from hurting someone else

    WELCOME JAZMINE ~ Thanks for very challenging first poem. Domestic abuse is very rife and we should all be alert to it ~ Within our Families ~ Within our Community ~ Within our Country. It is usually Men (sometimes the stories make me ashamed to be Male) but as your video shows ~ Females can be abusive too. Loved the music ~ Thanks for caring and sharing ~ BRIAN
