A Man Hitting A Woman

Related image

A man hitting a woman…
is what I saw today…
and I slammed on my brakes…
to yell “don’t treat her that way!”
And others were yelling…
“don’t hit her again!”…
and the police were called…
to come put it to an end.
But violence on the streets…
is being seen more each day…
as it has moved from behind doors…
cause some feel it’s acceptable today.
But violence is never acceptable…
in public or behind closed doors…
for we should treat all with kindness…
and always expect so much more.
For the brokenness we experience…
causes us to expect less and less…
but God has so much better for us…
so let’s rise above and expect the best.

  1. Beautiful and eloquent poem with a very powerful message. Love this:
    “But violence is never acceptable…
    in public or behind closed doors…”
