Writing Prompt #1

I wish I had never seen the way mom use to beat on you

You use to tell me how it was okay because you were a man

And it was easy to take that type of pain

But at some point between the slaps, punches, and kicks

You happened to lose your shit

And you hit back

Now you locked behind bars and I just wish you would come back

I was always on your side

I just thought you should know

It’s crazy how a man is punished for giving back a blow

The world doesn’t see this as a problem because when things like this happen women are deemed as not strong

Any other discussion about equality saying that would be wrong

This seems like a fight you could never have won

I just miss you, dad,

Disclaimer: Just a prompt I found on Pinterest. I will link it later when I find it but here’s my unpopular poem about domestic violence. Make sure you like, comment and share. Follow this blog for more.
