This poem relates to spousal abuse.

How can you love me

And hate me at the same time?

Go ahead! Blame it on me

Child abandonment! Incarceration! Drugs and alcohol!

You became angry just to provoke fights

You curse, yell, threaten, and hit me

You called me insulting names,


"whore or bitch"

You used a deep, loud,

and intimidating tone at our children

You even kept me away from my family and friends

You had the nerve to accuse me

Of having or wanting sex with other men

You disregard my feelings and emotions as unimportant

The truth of the matter is you put me through hell

Yeah, you definitely fooled me, Mr. Prince Charming

Have you ever thought about the unjust insults?

Or even comprehend your violent behavior

You really don’t even have a clue

Perhaps, one day you’ll see clearly

Your Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde behavior

But guess what! I’m no longer helpless or a victim

The truth is, by the grace of God "I have forgiven you"

Because through all of my pain, suffering, and tears

God has guided me through the darkness

And shown me the light to exercise my freedom

As a result, I am more confident about myself

I am wiser and stronger than ever

Based on what I have experienced and learned

I now have inner peace and happiness I longed for

Ladies, whenever life hands you a lemon,

just add the sugar

Sit down and wrap yourself in love with the sweetness

Trust me! The ingredients will restore your dignity

Self-respect, self-love, and personal empowerment

Psalms 121:5 says, "The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade."
