DV Awareness Day #3: Various Abuses– Treated With A Shrug

For October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I will be writing and sharing postings about abuse and it’s damage.  I encourage each of you to notice the warning signs and report abuse!

Various abuses…
are treated with a shrug…
as many ignore the warning signs…
like dirt pushed under a rug.
For if you don’t see it…
then you can pretend it’s not there…
but in it’s aftermath…
it appears you really didn’t care.
For many abuses today…
are accepted like they’re the norm…
as we seemingly lowered our standard…
and pretend that there’s no harm.
Like verbal and emotional abuses…
that we see out in open scenes…
but did you notice the victim’s faces..
and even consider what their fear means.
And physical and sexual abuses…
with visible bruises and heightened fear…
but though hidden behind closed doors…
notice victims shy away and won’t let you near.
And other abuses that occur…
in schools, churches, or workplaces…
are repeatedly ignored by onlookers…
until they’re affected by it’s disgraces.
For many people around today…
ignore the warning signs they come across…
saying it’s not their problem…
for it’s not their family or their loss.
But we are all brothers and sisters…
and from our Heavenly Father we’ve all come…
so let’s do our part to stop abuses…
and help it’s victims to overcome.
We need to stop treating abuse with a shrug…
and walking away like it’s no big deal…
for the damage from abuses is deep…
and the wounds to it’s victims are very real.
