Saturday Night Special - Warning PG at best - Domestic abuse

Posted by Hannah at 3:51 PM

This blogger wrote a poem about Domestic abuse in her life.

But, please know through my faith in God I have not only
survived.....I have a happy life.

Jackie Hooper

Tattern and torn with eyes that mourn
she stood with eyes aglaze always alone;
in the only prison she'd ever known.
Trapped by forces of trust, that were merely dust,
she stood mighty and strong
and wondered what she'd done wrong?
He put her there to keep her near.
Her only guilt--she'd been to0 sincere
in desperation and stupidity of youth,
she thought he to be one of truth.
Long since she escaped his twisted ways;
long ago, thousands of days.
But, still the wounds ground forever in her soul;
everyday she still wakes--she pays the toll.
Jackie Hooper 2005
