How it Feels to be Abused


Do you know how it feels to live a life full of fear?
Do you know how it feels to be told that you're stupid and useless?

Do you know how it feels to have someone hold a grudge against you?
Do you know how it feels to fight for acceptance?

Do you know how it feels to see that suicide as the only option?
Do you know how it feels to try
to reach for help and it seems like no cares?

Do you know how it feels to be chocked or slapped every day?
Do you know how it feels to be physically assaulted every day?

Well if you answered no, then you don't know what I feel every day.
And that I am being abused…..mentally, emotionally and physically.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
