She felt lonely ,in the deep dark night
Her man sleeping on the same bed
Who never forgot to abuse her
Yesterday ,today and even tomorrow??
She bore the physical pain ,
From the hits and kicks
Emotional pain was beyond endurance
She wondered why she married –
To the most deplorable man
With most afflictive mind
Who carried only negativities
Who never saw positives
Who felt triumphed each time she cried
Who felt high each time she was slapped .
She made it –
To walk out of it , barely twenty five was she
People condemned her ,
Never trying to know her worry
But she did it –
The ultimate triumph in her life
To live a life in peace forever .
Many a times ,women continue in an abusive relationship for the sake of children or for the fear of “what others might say ” . The above poem is a self reflection , how I escaped from such a person . In response to daily post prompt triumph. Triumph
