Paths Of Abuse


Pathways to freedom are fraught with male individuals
trying to block the way.
Standing about, yelling, cursing, making cutting remarks,
tearing apart the very fabric of a woman's being.
Casting her aside with little or no care or concern.
Never realizing that the woman is being ripped to shreds
by his violent actions and words.
Or maybe he does.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
