    “Scared for life? Is this really true, will you
    let the perpetrators have the best of you. …”
    at first I thought you meant “scarred”, but then I read more. it could be scarred OR scared; perhaps both!

    “You’ve been hurt, beaten, raped, taken advantage of.
    Scared for life? Is this really true, will you
    let the perpetrators have the best of you. I think
    not, you must not seek revenge, for then you will be
    allowing them to have you over and over again.”
    in the above lines, starting at “…you must not…”, it seems you
    have moved from one good piece of advice to another, but if
    that is true, perhaps two stanzas could be used. And, although:
    ‘revenge may (to some people) be the Lord’s’, would you consider
    it revenge if the victim reported the crimes, pressed charges, and
    tried to get a conviction? ? if so, I think more crimes will be allowed/
    promoted, which, TO ME is a crime! ! !

    Good Lord Melvina, I hope and pray that you are right in this excellent piece you've written....People violate us, rip our guts out taking what is ours and we are left to pick up the pieces. It makes it difficult to believe, especially when what is rightfully yours, and others as well, is beaten down, one by two by three to the hundreds....trying to hold on of what's left of what's been taken from me....what was my very heart and soul. God bless and keep you safe from such and thank you for these words...............love, marci.xo (Report)Reply

    Mel, another wonderful truth you have told here. We must put our trust in God to help us on our way. We must live our life to the full and enjoy all the happiness it may bring. Top marks and thanks for sharing your wisdom my friend.

    Mel... Does not the good book also say ' AN EYE FOR AN EYE ' But the best way to get revenge is to have a happy life, don't let them take the rest of your life...10 (Report)Reply
