Abuse has gone on for so long- this is not where
Women and children belong.
They belong in an environment that’s safe and sound
And no abuse to be found , and not where they become
A battering ram from an abusers uncaring hand.
Abusers feel power when they’re in control , and will
Never leave the abused alone – because they think that it’s the norm
And they create their own abusive form.
Whether it’s verbal or physical it has to stop
So pick up the phone and call a cop.
Maybe in jail they’ll get the same treatment that they have given you
Just to know what you’ve gone through.
You was not brought into this world to be a punching bag
Or on the ground where they can stomp and clean their feet
And have them feel that it’s a treat.
Yet the worse may be sexual abuse by a relative who you had put your trust
to satisfy their wants and needs and on your innocence they did feed.
Once they see a family member will not fight , then with others
They think it’s all right.
If you don’t stop abuse dead in its tracks , then they’ll be no turning back.
(The one you save may be yourself or someone else )
