Violence At Home

bathroom sink with mirror and soap

Violence at home Is a weakness,
to unable to connect.
to unable to reflect.
to cover up the flaws.
to cover up for they will reveal.

Violence at home is a weakness,
not willing to accept others opinion.
fear of losing ones position.
inability to handle human emotions.
suppressing those questioning your intentions.

Violence at home is a weakness.
That defines ones mental strength.
that defines what you are when among your own.

that shows how one vents to all struggles one faces,
to keep up the face of perfect being.

that shows how well one have been brought up,
to use power to assert their position.

Stop when time is right,
cos when you will be weary.
And you will crawl like a baby.
Back to those arms.
Who will still open up to comfort you in.
Though your arms always lifted to commit sin.
