She…

SHE CHOSE THE WRONG MEN ALL THE TIME

SHE COULD NEVER GET IT RIGHT

SHE LOATHED THE DRAMA IN HER LIFE

SHE THOUGHT THE ABUSE AND BEATINGS WAS ALRIGHT

SHE THOUGHT THE BATTERING WASN’T A CRIME 

SHE SAID HE LOVED HER THAT’S WHY THEY FIGHT

SHE WASN’T ALLOWED FRIENDS, SHE WAS  IN A PLIGHT

SHE WAS CONTROLLED BY HIM, COULDN’T BE OUT OF HIS SIGHT

SHE SEEKED HELP, SHE TRIED TO RUN. AND SHE TRIED TO HIDE

SHE ONCE ESCAPED, BUT SHE WAS CAUGHT AND CONFINED

SHE WAS CAPTIVATED BY HIS SWEET WORDS, HE SAID “LET’S REUNITE”

SHE WAS LURED WITH FLOWERS, WINE AND DINED

SHE WAS ONCE AGAIN ASSAULTED FROM MORNING TILL NIGHT

SHE TRIED PROTECTING HER BABIES FROM THE FRIGHT

SHE SHIELD THEM WITH ALL HER MIGHT

SHE DID NOT BELIEVE UPON HIS OWN KIDS,VIOLENCE HE WOULD INCITE

SHE PLEADED AND BEGGED, BUT HE WAS NOT CONTRITE

SHE WITNESSED HIS TERROR, SHE SAW EVIL IN HIS EYES

SHE TOOK MATTERS IN HER HANDS, AND STRENGTH SHE APPLIED

SHE DID NOT MEAN TO LET HIM DIE, IN HIS CHEST SHE PLUNGED THE KNIFE

SHE ACTED IN SELF DEFENSE, BUT HER ACTION WASN’T JUSTIFIED

SHE IS NOW HEADING TO PRISON FOR A LIFETIME, HER FREEDOM DENIED

SHE DID NOT LIKE THE CHOICE

 BUT IT WAS  HIM, HER, OR THE CHILDREN’S LIFE
