uwe have to face up to domestic Violence in this country.. it’s not something you can sweep up and wrap in newspaper.. just wash the bruises off.. right?
Hearts on sleeves are hard to launder.
You don’t just get over it.
It can crush even the hardiest of souls…
You just live with the marks indelibly carved into your psyche.. you rebuild what you can
Of your self esteem and say
Step by step.. you get out.
Day by day
You make ways to overcome it.
But it stays with you, victims, perpetrators.. kids.. who all perpetuate cycles of violence.
Stop the despair
It’s not just a fight
It’s a damn shame.
Be a better example to our kids of a healthy respectful relationship..
