Will I Make It

I made it through another day

I made it through another week

I made it through another month

I made it through another year

YES I MADE IT!

But the pain in my eyes

The hurt is still in my body

The angry words still rings into my ears.

My friends always asking, Sandy, why do you stay with that man?

Why do you take all that abuse and suffer that hurt?

I try to justify his behavior by saying, he LOVES me

But only my body suffer from the punches and my face suffers from the lingering slaps,

He flashes back and forth

The shame I seldom feel, but how can I leave?

Can someone please show me?

Can someone please tell me?

How do I get away from this relationship? Fifteen years of my life!

Yes I made it through another day

I made it through another week

I made it through another month

I made it through another year

 

Yes! I made it! But will I make it another minute??

One thought on “Will I Make It

  1. mz confident

    Making it is not an option
    Making it should be our priority

    How do we make it ?
    We make it with love, hope, resilience and strenght

    A minute may seem long yet short
    but us making it
    is what makes the difference!
