Abuse betraying trust
Bruises replacing hope
Conditioned to take the blame
An evil insidious game

Doubts consuming self worth
Hiding from fear itself
Victim of a twisted soul
A sentence without a parole

Helpless to take control
Dependent and yet alone
Intervention never comes
Nowhere to turn nowhere to run

And so the story goes
Society’s heart turn cold
Civilization erodes
Satan delights with every blow

Sanctuary seems found
Numbness through substance consumed
A spirit surrendered
A body broken and old
Too much pain to endure
Too much pain to endure

The abuse of women and children is an insedious cancer that destroys the fabric of decency and humanity.

I would love for you to read my poem "As a Spider Weaves~Hearts do Weep".
Once one is able to see, and chooses to fight..the battle, seems never ending..One can become so very, very tired.

Michael! This is a great piece you have written here. Thank you for writing it, and bringing awareness of abuse out in the open. Where it needs to be. Bless you.

Reviewed by Linda Hill 6/3/2002 have captured the horror of abuse with the magic of your keyboard. Abuse is one of the worst things to have to endure..and hardly ever reported. Would you read my ' Why Don't Mommy Love Me? ' for another kind of abuse? Thank you , Michael for enlightening us!
