BEFORE ITS TOO LATE…


Hi my darlings.Its the last monday of the month.I hope you can all gladly say you spent July well. I must say this year has been rather too fast. Please does anyone know where  years past go to? However it went, id like to remind you that things can only get better from here.Keep being positive.

   Today i want us to discuss something  really important>>> Domestic violence and abuse in relationships. People are suffering and smiling all around the globe because they just cant muster the courage to get up and leave. They feel there is too much at stake and they stand to loose much if they leave.Worse still, the fear of the unknown wont let them budge. The relationship they find themselves in is the only way they know how to live their lives. I would like to dwell on abuse in relationships in a future  post. But for today, lemme share with y’all some poem i found. All id say is a word to the wise is sufficient. Pack up and go before its too late. We often regret the things we didnt do more than those we did…

I GOT FLOWERS TODAY
Dedicated to all battered women
By Paulette Kelly

I got flowers today!
It wasn’t my birthday or any other special day.
We had our first argument last night. And he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt.
I know that he is sorry and didn’t mean to say the things he said
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today
It wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day.
Last night he threw me into a wall and then started choking me.
It seemed like a nightmare, but you wake up from nightmares to find they aren’t real.

I got flowers today!
It wasn’t Valentine’s Day or any other special day.
Make up and long sleeves didn’t hide the cuts and bruises this time.
I couldn’t go to work because I didn’t want anyone to know – but I know he’s sorry
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today!
And it wasn’t Mother’s Day or any other special day.
Last night he beat me again, and it was much worse than all the other times.
If I leave him now, what will I do? How will I take care of the kids? What about money?
I’m afraid of him, but I’m too scared and dependent to leave him. But he must be sorry
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today…
Today was a very special day – It was the day of my funeral.
Last night he finally killed me – I was beaten to death.
If only I would have gathered the courage and strength to leave him.
The women’s shelter could have helped me, but I didn’t ask for their help.
So I got flowers today…for the last time.
