O Anna Niemus

If Ever She Should Leave Him - Poem by O Anna Niemus

She worked at a domestic battering shelter, and
she would remind those on the outside who made judgmental
comments about women who went back to abusive husbands...how difficult it is to leave a man.

100 actions must fall into place.

One mother of 3 worried about

Ignoring her church's and her society's programming about divorce,
protecting the children, protecting the relatives from his revenge,
having money to make the move when he held the purse strings, having a rare detachment about leaving
many precious things behind, or else gradually removing things,

and the most difficult, which is cutting the ties of love,
more difficult for many than separating Siamese twins joined at the heart
