Billy was an angry man

he hated his own life

but instead of making changes

he took it out on his children & his wife

his hands, his belt, a wooden spoon;

anything in reach would do

and after every vicious assault

he made sure they knew it was their fault

  1. Grrrrr, oh, did I write that OUT LOUD? Perfectly said, as always, Melanie. Few words and it hits you fast and hard. THIS HAS TO END! Great poem.

  2. Reblogged this on Rethinking Life and commented:
    Another raw and honest poem from Melanie.

  3. This is more common than I like

  4. One person like this is simply one too many. :/
