Domestic (Poem)

Why is it funny when a woman beat on a man?

Why is it not talked about when a woman constantly slaps a man?

When he walks away

Like most people say

He is still attacked

When he hits back

Why is it then wrong to hit your spouse?

Because a woman is not as strong

Right that old saying that is constantly looked down upon in other cases

But in this case, it’s perfectly fine, right?

I thought it was a woman can do everything a man can do right?

So it’s different when it comes to an altercation

She’s weak when she hits me


And I’m the aggressor when I hit her

When will this change

No one likes to be hit especially by their spouse

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,
