|STOP!! Your couplets ring out with sobering fact and compelling exhortation, Abdullahi, and I admire both your strength and grace in putting your case forward. I especially find memorable your closing lines. Do unto others what you would have others do unto you are words which spring to mind. Your ways are the ways of peace, both externally and of the mind and heart. Bless you and thank you for this. Kate x|

|i agree with your sentiments in this poem ... these abuses have been going down since man came into being ... historically, abuse seems to be inherent in human nature and will continue to thrive until mankind evolves both intellectually, spiritually and emotionally ... poets like you help to move the process along more expeditiously ...|

|Great poem of pain, love, courage and hope. you are a voice for those whose voice is rarely heard and you stand up to defend the rights of minorities world-wide. This is a sign of your conviction to protect the rights of the minorities and the disadvantaged groups of the society who deserve to enjoy equal rights with the rest of the people. Thanks brother for bringing this problem to our attention and thanks for the message. Your brother Abdi-Noor|

|Powerful and true about the
Abuse of children, women, the disabled
And some young couples who are just dating
is very sad the real of what goes on in our
World I agree with your poem, we need to take
Responsibility and get involved whenever we see
Or suspect Abuse reported help bring hope to
I loved your poem. You brought
A subject a lot of people don't like to talk about
Or deal with. I think the poems
best quality is the depth you went
into about how an abuse in general

|A poet that writes about start protecting the weak, the defenceless, the ones that need a entire village (us) to take care of them.
Children are the seed, we destroy it and tomorrow will be no crops.
Very well done

|I echo the sentiments in this succinct poem.
However, it is ironic that some of the 'minorities' who were designated victim status by academics have themselves become tyrannies of a sociological kind. Here in the UK for example, we have the tyranny of some animial 'rights' campaigners, anti-smoking lobby, anti-obese (relatively defined) lobby, disability activists,and 'green' activists etc etc etc.
Itallian communist, Gramsci's novel idea of treating all minorities including the majority on equal terms has led to the absurdity of a core minority (even one indivudual e.g. complaining about smoking in a Tom and Jerry cartoon which led to the scene being deleted) usurping the rights of the majority (all the other minorities included).
Yes, Abdullahi, we are all for helping the weak but we must guard against those who take advantage of the weak for their own unrepresentive ideological ends.

Continue to speak out; continue to be an advacate for change. Maybe if enough people hear our message, the abuse will stop. An excellent message in short poetic form; gets the message out there!

<Applause!> This is a much needed poem and I thank you for writing it. I also write for the abused. There is no excuse, Abdullahi. The elderly and children of the world should not live in fear. Children should be happy , playing, laughing, not hiding in closets in fear of their next beating. Thank you so much for speaking up for the ones who don't have a voice...the abused. OUTSTANDING poem!
God bless you for this write.

You can add the disabled and elderly to that list. They are exploited or abused too.
