Sister Friend, Why - Poem by Adrienne Clark Strachn

Sister, Friend, Why!
Sister, friend, you are so beautiful.
Why do you let him put you down?
Yelling, screaming, hitting, insults, cries of pain.
Sister, friend, you are a child of God.
When are you going to let go and give it to God?
Start walking, run, don't turn back.
Jesus is holding His hand out, smile and say, I am free.
Go, sister, friend, positive energy, laughing, smiling,
Beautiful face, tall and erect stature.
Welcome back, there goes my friend.
Welcome back....

For my special girlfriend

    Very nice. Anyone who is in an abusive relationship should go ahead and make the move. Get out while you are still alive. You deserve more than that. You are a child of God, as Adrienne said.
