OCTOBER IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
Domestic violence resources:
……If you know of someone who may be experiencing domestic violence – help them break the silence….Contact someone asap….. Sometimes it is much more difficult for the person in the situation to call out for help…..
Ariana R. Cherry: Poet & Artist
I thought my life was normal.
Caught up in my own farce,
I thought it was what
all the other couples did.
I knew no other way.
I let you let me cry.
I thought it was okay,
to feel like you wanted to die.
I saw others’ happiness…
I secretly watched that other guy,
I thought it was all play,
In my world,
Love would not allow you
Years of fighting an unruly heart,
While I allowed you to tear it apart,
and I never got to put it back together
I thought it was normal,
to feel so broken.
One late evening,
feeling so incredibly alone…
I had a recognition.
My heart cried out for life.
It begged to be realized.
It asked, that I run away
from the inflicting knife.
It beat at the thoughts
