Abuse Of A Loving Wife - Poem by Alicia Blackwell

When the beatings start
You forget the love in your heart

When I love you starts to mean nothing at all
You being told its all your fault

Your scaed you will say the wrong thing
Because you will be called horrible names

Then things start getting worse
You feel there's no one you can trust

When your dreams are all shattered
Nothing seems to matter

When you look at your kids and think you should stay
That's when all you can do is pray

Just remember you can be something
Instead of feeling like nothing

When life seems unfair
There is people who care

When all he knows is to hit her
There is three important things to remember

First abuse is nothing to play with
Who wants to be hit with a fist

Second God cares about you
So let him help you do what is best for you to do

Third and most important of all you deserve to have a life
Instead of being a beat up wife

    we have to fight for our rights all the time,
    if someone wants to have a play,
    i play with him,
    if he kicks me, i try to kick him harder,
    if he wants to hurt my personality,
    to break my pride, i break him harder.
    if we fight with devils, GOD help us to win.

    'This poem is heart wrenching........I've known so many abused woman, and have worked at safe houses, and it usually, on the average takes an abused wife 7 times to leave her husband, and even then there is no guarantee she won't eventually go back! It's a possession of sorts, he aims right for self esteem, she feel empty, and unworthy. No self confidence, and so she goes back, and, back.
    This was a well written poem, and I could feel the futility in it.
    Our society must come up with a better solution........too many abused wives are being killed.
    Good job.
    Warm Poetic Love,
