This piece is dedicated to all the mommies
out there, who need to make a choice in stopping the violence,
But Mainly Stopping The Violence On Their Innocent Babies!
You worshipped the ground he walked on,
adored him, cherished him, esteemed him,
cooked for him, cleaned for him,
you even went out and worked for him!
You were his confidant, counselor, uplifter,
you gave so much of yourself
devoted and loyal
you Chose him!
In turn, he disrespected you, abused you, taunted you,
he stripped you of all your womanhood, stole your integrity,
your dignity, your principles, your being!
You were fit to be tied, you were tired!
you wore many hat's, you wore them well!
You were never right, he won every argument and fight
he had divided loyalty
he used you, punished you, over-talked you,
made you feel worthless, and ashamed!
was a master at this controling game!
I was hurt and abused
labeled a liar!
told, "don't you say a word"!
go to your room,
better not cry!
better not tell!
Look at me ,I'm a doctor, lawyer, orator,
I'm a wife, mother, father, uncle, aunt, friend
Bachelors degree, Masters, PHD.
But Wait! I NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO SAY...
"This One's For You Mommie"
Dreams NEVER REALIZED!
FULL POTENTIAL, NEVER MATERIALIZED!
I CAME HERE ON YOUR PLEASURE!
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO YOU BEING MY PROTECTOR?
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO YOU GIVING YOUR LIFE FOR ME?
THIS WASN'T THE WAY IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE!
I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAVE SACRIFICED MY LIFE!
Just Because your man wanted to fight!
SO MANY CHOICES! ONLY "ONE" SHOULD HAVE MATTERED!
IF YOU HAD ONLY LISTENED,
IF I ONLY HAD A VOICE,
IF I ONLY HAD A CHOICE!
ISN'T IT IRONIC THAT IN THE END, I WAS THE CHOSEN ONE!
CHOSEN TO BE THE VOICE FOR SO MANY INNOCENT BABIES AND CHILDREN,
LIKE ME, WHO HAVE BEEN OR WILL BE KILLED BY THEIR MOMMIES ABUSER!
I'M DECLARING....MOMMIE, STOP THE ABUSE!
BE MY VOICE!
Come on Mom's, make the right CHOICE...
Your Child's life depends on it!
