    It was in her tears that I could feel his hand go upset her head
    As the tears dropped on my shoulder from her hurt I heard every vulgar thing he had said
    I felt every bruise on her ribs as it ached she wished she was dead
    My how this friend of mine wished they had never wed
    Much less met
    Not too long ago he was the perfect man
    And as she looked down at her wedding band
    In her tears I was suddenly sadden
    sadden
    sadden
    Because I remember when
    I set them up and I became the god mother of their first two children
    Now this man, and friend of mine, was suddenly changing

    It was in her tears that i saw how she felt when her children saw her hit the hard concrete
    And as the smallest one pulled at her feet
    Another tear shed and the blood fell on her second child which was three
    This man, friend of mine, didn't care as he pulled and beat her down the street
    With the small children tagging along behind in the summer heat
    It was a sad scene and I could hear her heart beat
    beat
    beat
    beat
    thump
    beat
    As her head hit the hard concrete

    What am I supposed to tell her as i wash away the tears from her face with a hard napkin?
    that she should leave my best friend and leave the beating?
    That my friend was really not my friend and that he shouldn't be her man?
    Am I to make this strong decision for her
    Or just help her in her most troubled moment and tell her I feel for her
    I was confused......
    I was confused.......
    ????

    You see where I'm from it's like a part of life
    Man beats wife
    Wife stay in man's life
    But it had never been this close to home, it had never been apart of my life
    I felt strife
    So deep in my heart that it cut like a knife
    cut
    like
    a
    knife

    But in her tears I could also see love
    The deep love that I and others often dream of
    That deep love
    But was it so deep to keep her going thur this until she met the angels above?
    What the fukk was she thinking of?
    It was in her tears.......

    It was in her tears, her family
    no money
    No car, and no mommy and daddy
    She was lonely
    And he was the only one that cared for her and gave her and her kids a penny
    She hadn't any
    It was all in her tears........the reason for being a dummy

    Sweettee I'm so sorry sister that you had to be a lady in this kind of predicament like so many women from my neighbohood. This was told fom a person on the outside of the situation. People often see the reality of the situation through the outside of someone's tears. The person looking through the tears are often blinded by the salty residue around and on their eyes. So I feel for you sister but it was honestly meant to touch people in this situation and people who have been in this situation like you. I love you sister and be blessed.

    re:Dummy

    Oh god, what an excellent write of real life. Men who beat a woman is most definitely a coward.
