|your poem ignited old memories that I don't like to recall--a long time ago when I was about 8 I saw my Mother being beaten by our Father in a drunken rage--looking back on it just recently and thinking about it--it brought up a lot of Anger as to where was God in all of that awful moment of time? I recall my older sister crying and then he stopped....so what I felt was that perhaps God moved my sister to cry and He was actually there after all--for me it was a healing moment|

|Oh I have so much melancholy for children in abusive and dysfunctional family environments. I pray that God sends Angels to watch over them because sometimes at a spur of a moment, that all they have! Great write Linda and thanks for sharing. Blessings to you!

|Sometimes violence (physical,mental) is a cry for help that hurts often our dearest and brings terror even death; I experienced it when I was a child...
We have to protect us from it, but not to answer the same way, otherwise we fall in a endless vicious circle.
You described it very well, it is deeply moving, you are a fine heart writer,Linda
Peace & Blessings,

|I felt so sad reading this poem. It is just so well expressed that I felt the pain in my heart. What can I say? Some people are just monsters and they don't care who they hurt, or about the extent of damage they do to their children. Thank you, Ron|

|Wow such a powerful write, I could feel the fear, I feel like hiding under the bed clothes now, I can relate to a lot of what you write, Parents so absorbed in their own troubles seldom consider how its affecting the kids or maybe they just don't want to think of the affect it is having. God bless. baz|

|I had to choke back a cry as I read this Linda, it is so hard for me to understand how any man could treat his family in this manner. I have done things in my life that I am not proud of, but one of my cardinal rules has never been broken: never lift a hand towards any woman. Only a coward would impose brutality upon someone whom he knows he can beat. I am sorry if I am speaking out of line here but my anguish of reading has turned to anger against him and all men like him.
Love and blessings Linda,

|So sad, but so true. I felt the fear and the trembling of this child. Very well written, Linda. May God bless you every day of your life.

|An excellent, but sad write, Linda. This is one of my favorites from you. I like how this one story continues throughout the whole poem. It made me feel the characters' emotions more. Many of yours have several stories in one. Either way, your voice is unique, and you speak for many who cannot speak for themselves.

|What I remember about my father is that he allowed my mother and her five children to be put out in the street in the cold of winter, I was 5 years old. If it weren't for me crying on the footsteps of a Catholic Church and a nun found me we would have possibly perished! Thank God and that was the abuse I remember. Through prayer I have learned to forgive him and he knew that we he died at 86 years of age! Thank you Linda and I know I needed to share this. Peace!!!|

|Dear sweet friend Lori,you are at your very best.RatherI am moved much
with your expressive words that flowed fluently about the abusing of the parents before children."Childhood taken away by abuse and tears
Heartache and pain, wasted years." you are very apt dear Lori. childhood is the cream of manhood and the precious years wasted in the childhood take away the noble cause for which God has created everyone of us. Tahnk you for sharing your feelings in such apoetic words.

|EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PAINFUL WRITE!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva|
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Painful with a capital P, not only because of the child but because it hits a personal note with me. This brought back all too painful memories of my first marriage when it was both my first wife and I were married way too young and before we had a chance to discover we were not only not meant to be we plain out couldn't get along. The difining moment came when my little girl walked out between us in the middle of one of these fights holding our wedding picture.

|Can relate, eighty years ago I thought I was living on a war field because it was my fault, all of it, the screams, the slamming doors, the "words", and nobody apologized, ever.
