It's All of Our Business
It’s none of your business!
Interjected quickly and often,
Becomes an all too familiar sound
But those five words can’t soften,
Your violent background
How many times inside,
Can you fall through walls and doors?
How long can you hide,
Broke bones, bruises and sores?
Life can lose all meaning,
For abusers who accidentally kill
Without sound mind and reasoning,
More loved ones blood may spill
If he beats you to death,
Your family can be in danger
Inhaling your last breath,
As hindsight points it’s finger
Cold answering walls of silence,
Your family is sure to hear
Knowing your death by violence,
Will confirm their worst fears
Domestic violence is only a precursor,
Of unspeakable horrors to come
From these potential murderers,
You must learn to run!
Don’t wait to late,
At first hint of severe obsession
Hurry with great haste,
Before he traps you with deception
With the Creator as your guide,
You’ll find lost self-esteem
Reach down deep inside,
Fulfill your independence dream
Get to safety first,
Or your life a family may lose
Dear Mother, Sister or Nurse,
God doesn’t want you misused
Those men face the Lord’s curse,
When you are abused
It’s my hope to inspire women to identify bad relationships and encourage them to leave before they lose their dignity, or much worse: the lives of their loved ones or themselves. You are never responsible for the criminal behavior of others who physically abuse you or your children. Please seek help.
