This poem is for all those who have suffered at the hands of domestic abuse. If you haven’t heard it today I want you to know that I love you and its going to be okay. I hope this gives you courage to get through the day -AJ
No more saying No more
What are we fighting for?
For you to slap me
And tell me
Its my faulT because I ignored you?
These old excuses ain’t nothing new.
You beat me after making LOVE TO ME
AS though my body meant nothing to you
This TEMPLE is ALL I HAVE
You don’t Like what I say?
Well that’s too bad.
i dIDN’T EVEN accept beatings from my DAD
So why you?
There must be a hold on my SOUL
a CONNECTION that lost reception
and went BAD bUT won’t let go
Call GAS AND POWER have them fix the Utility Pole
Because when I lay NEXT to you I cringe
My heart breaks WONDERING…
wHEN YOUR fist will meet my flesh AGAIN!
i’M JUST another Black W0men broken
But I ain’t writing NO DIARY
i AIN’T going to pray for you to get off ME
No more lying to family and friends
About where the abuse started
And where it ENDS
nO More sacrificing my welfare for you
What is Jesus going to say
When I STEP TO the pearly GATES?
wHY did you settle for TOxic Love my child?
when I paved the WAy
