  • Domestic violence community: I am Love's Soldier

    In acknowledgement and respect for all who have suffered or are suffering abuse.

    I am love's soldier

    I've had to crawl on shard glass
    been knocked flat on my a**
    Had a gun pointed straight at my face
    Dragged through shame and disgrace

    I've had to run and hide for my life
    the love in my heart carved out with a knife
    I've cried tears of blood so many times
    I've lived in fear enough to last me a lifetime

    But I am love's soldier with scars of survival
    Sheer determination, will to live unrivaled
    Still alive, free of hatred and bitterness
    waiting for true love, trying to make sense of nonsense

                          Some people don't know how to love because they were never loved. This poem stirs emotions and evokes feelings of angst. Well done drawing attention to an otherwise taboo subject.

                            Thank you Odonko-ba and that is true in some cases. In other too many cases, people are sadistic and enjoy bullying and hurting others because inside they're selfish little people with a sense of entitlement -- narcissists -- unfortunately are growing by scary proportions.

                          Amazing beauty and honesty in this poem; have read and reread! A subject that needs light cast upon it many times over; kudos.

                            Thank you very much katray. Abuse should never be tolerated in any fashion but predators know how to keep their victims under control. They really need a good support system to break free.
