    Feeling unworthy of love
    her pain hidden
    she disappeared

    Her life unfolding before her eyes
    she wanted to end the pain
    thought she belonged to him

    He was her husband
    not suppose to beat her
    made her feel like she was nothing

    He wanted to take her life
    broke her down
    if she did not have sex with him

    He raped her
    choked her
    her suffering kept a secret

    Would hit her
    tried to stab her
    shocked he could do this

    Everyday she lived with worry
    felt like it was her fault
    he claimed to love her

    Said he would take both their lives
    her children witnessed the abuse
    violation complete

    Entered a shelter
    saw no turning back
    LEFT

    Happy for her, but sorry for the next one...smh
    there's only one strike in life...and I'm history to him, In many cases...it only takes once...to shut you down.
    Wise move she made, and lucky I might add, everytime she see the word "Back" ...she should burn it.

    This is another sad reality
    that happens all too often
    out of fear and nowhere to run
    some feel they are forced to stay
    with hopes that maybe just maybe
    it won’t happen again

    often many find themselves in too deep
    confused and beat until they seek him
    and end this spin .....some make it out
    some don't these kinda boy men are sad and sorry!
    a pure zero ........sad that our Queens have to face
    this kind of trash in life from a jack A%%.

    It is a shame...
    That a person can try and tear down a woman and break her...
    Break her spirit
    Trying to destroy her very being...
    It is time to break the cycle....
