a band of gold around your finger

shouldn’t feel like bracelets made of steel

you should feel his arm around your shoulders

not his hands around your throat

that is not love

love

love

supports

not controls

love

uses hands

to hold and caress

not to punch

or bind

or bruise

“love”

is never

an excuse

for any kind

of abuse

Love doesn’t look like THIS…this is what HATE looks like

Does this painting reach in and pull out your heart? Perhaps you know someone who has looked like this? Perhaps it has even been you…
IF you think no one you know has been or is being beaten you are deluding yourself. Some of us just hide it well.

It is not ok, it is never ok and no one deserves to be a punching bag.

If anyone lays a hand on you in violence please know:
1- Contrary to what they may say it is not because they love you sooo much
2- You didn’t MAKE them do it
3- They will do it again

Try But Don’t Cry

I had to share this powerful poem of yet another broken childhood. Shattered by the fists of Domestic Violence.
Yet she is raising her voice, now will you listen?
