Cycle of abuse.




Abuse flows down

through the years.

Generational found,

My rage I hear.


Father to son,

horrible lessons taught.

The deed is done,

like an animal caught.


Gentleness lies dead,

maggots in rotting flesh.

Devils dance within your head.

My rage is fresh.


The hand of love

brings tears of pain.

A hard fist, a quick shove

leaves the victim with the shame.


A legacy left behind,

family secrets to hide.

All eyes go blind,

no one to confide.

Your words are the right echoes of distorted minds and their hidden wrongs.

Beautiful structure and writing.

So few words that speaks volumes of love twisted in pain from abuse and nobody wants to talk about it or hear about it. It never happened anyway. Excellent poem. Liz

Wow...and abuse in families seems to be escallating.
Sad commentary on the times.

Well said.
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 9/17/2006

Some abuses go on and beyond when family members turn a deaf ear. Some have carried it all the way to the graves. Very sad!!!

Reviewed by Peter Paton 9/16/2006

Abuse in any shape or form is a latent evil and aberration.

I would strongly advise anyone unfortunate enough to be caught up in that cycle and web of horror, to get out of the situation as soon as possible, and seek professional help and refuge..

Love and Peace
