Poem .......The feel of scar tissue

Just how much do you think the
child can take
Yes ....the world is watching you in
spite of the precautions you make

Only strike them in the abdomon
the bruises will never show
Of course do it in the darkness
the world will never know

And even if its verbal ......the scar
tissue spreads its evil plague
Until deep.... deep inside the essence
of soul grows vague

An abuser once told me "No one knows a bastard
like the bastard does himself"
Go ahead ...increase the pain
raise it to the continental shelf

But what will you do when you arrive
on judgement day
When the face you abuse now is
reflected on the gatekeepers way

Or perhaps vengeance isn't just the lords
maybe it awaits you here
watch closely over your shoulder
for I may be right there

Good effort on a timely (sadly, even an everlasting) topic. Some choose the weakest among us to vent their anger and frustrations, failing to recall that "of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

Amen! You can hide from man but not God. An abuser will answer someday. If not on earth when he\she stands before God.
