hittING MY face


This poem is for all those who have suffered at the hands of domestic abuse. If you haven’t heard it today I want you to know that I love you and its going to be okay. I hope this gives you courage to get through the day -AJ


No more saying No more

What are we fighting for?

For you to slap me

And tell me

Its my faulT because I ignored you?


These old excuses ain’t nothing new.

You beat me after making LOVE TO ME

AS though my body meant nothing to you



You don’t Like what I say?

Well that’s too bad.

i dIDN’T EVEN accept beatings from my DAD

So why you?


There must be a hold on my SOUL

a CONNECTION that lost reception

and went BAD bUT won’t let go

Call GAS AND POWER have them fix the Utility Pole


Because when I lay NEXT to you I cringe

My heart breaks WONDERING…

wHEN YOUR fist will meet my flesh AGAIN!

i’M JUST another Black W0men broken

But I ain’t writing NO DIARY

i AIN’T going to pray for you to get off ME


No more lying to family and friends

About where the abuse started

And where it ENDS


nO More sacrificing my welfare for you

What is Jesus going to say

When I STEP TO the pearly GATES?


wHY did you settle for TOxic Love my child?

when I paved the WAy
