Poem: Scared

Stay home, stay safe they say
But what if home isn’t safe today?

What if home is a terror to you?
What then, are you to do?

It’s the reality for many today
Where abuse is the normal way

There are no easy answers for this
But something we shouldn’t miss

Wounds from abuse run very deep
Where words and punches pile in a heap

I wish we could rescue every one
So abuse would end and then be done

What are your thoughts?
