This poem is about all those sorry men in this world who think it is perfectly ok to put their hands on the women they supposedly love


Sorry assed brothers,

of all creeds, and colors,

these trifling, no good men,

you know, the ones that make you want to sin,

the one's who claim they love, adore and protect you,

never, ever would disrespect you,

but what is the first thing that they do, cheat, lie, scheme and connive,

their way into our beds, our hearts and our lives,

you are that type of woman to never fall for that,

but, there you are at his beck and call at the drop of a hat.

you make all the usual excuses for why you are still here,

you can't think about your life without shedding some tears,

you keep telling your girls, how he needs you, can't live without you,

but, more than likely, he's screwing one of your girls, too.

you say that you love him, that he is your man,

but, sometimes girl you must take a stand.

all he does is cause you unneccessary trauma,

with all his excessive baby mama drama,

he has another past, another future, a whole other life,

in another stat he has two kids and a wife.

he beats your ass on a daily basis,

then cries apologies out both his faces,

and after all of this, you will still stay,

and every night kneel down to pray,

just to wake up in the morning,

it's a vicious cycle that leaves you longing and yearning,

until you realize there is no change,

as long as you stay your life will always be the same,

for all his trifling games, you take all the blame,

you give it to God to bring you through this trial,

but even He can only do so much with the ruthless and vial,

pensively you wait for his next violent explosion,

that leaves you to battle so many emotions.

Thank you for the glorifing review, it uplifts me to see my poetry accepted and appreciated,and no this was not a personal experience, just I have seen too many go through this horrendous experience and the outcome is never pretty. I wanted to put it out there so people would think and maybe see what is happening to themselves or a loved one and fight like hell to get them out of that situation.

Powerful poem, words that ring true to many...There are too many men of this type lurking about...and too many victims who have fallen prey...this is the words that should be spoken, or even shouted, get the word out so others will be aware. Very well written and expressed.

This is a poem that needs to be written, read, and listened to, To many wives, girlfriends are victims of one that say I love you with a cold steel blow of the hand or words that shred their souls this is powerful thank you,

You speak of a rampant disease in this society. Has always been there and always will be. This construct moved me. I hope this wasn't from personal experience.
