An abusive person uses threats and violence to keep a victim compliant.
To manipulate,.destruct and destroy.
In a place where they have control
Fearful to make eye contact for fear of retribution.
They don’t want you to gaze at them
If challenged.a coward will run
They will see the pain in your eyes
They see themselves reflected back.
Evil, cruel, callous and unkind.
Then they lose the grip and over on you
So please I’m absolutely begging you
Left your head and see the world as a beautiful place
See the abuser for what they are
Cold staring ugly weasel eyes.
No light will ever reach their soul.
Only the fires that burn in hell
Go back to the mirror please look again
Detach the wounded inner self
Love forgive and console your self
Gaze upon a survivors reflection
Look deep in to their eyes
Deep down inside
To go down to the absolute depths of despair.
There’s only one way to go now
Up up up up and up again
Gaining control of your own destiny
Please take heart things get better
Let others love you and find out how special that you are.
Let down the guard.
Learn to trust your own instincts
Draw upon your strengths
There is no room at the inn to fail
As my dear please believe in yourself
Your worth a million bullies
Strong dignified and pure inside.
You didn’t want or ask for it
Go into your soul and bring out the light
With trust and compassion
With your dignity and poise
These are your gifts no one can destroy
Please don’t believe ugly names toy we’re often called.
Reverse your thinking strategy
These names they shout is who
They really are not you.
Be true to you and only you
Be brave and stand your ground
Be your own saviour
Remove the brick wall of isolation
Let the hurt child in you move on
Only then you can believe and dream
Get help and close the wounded part
There will always be scars and confusion
But don’t let these people dictate
Your life now free of aBuse
Chin up and look up
Be proud of all your little victories
And rejoice breaking that cycle
Of pain, confusion, and suffering.
Be strong as you have survived
And you are slowly starting to heal
Don’t waste time on drink and drugs
It doesn’t help and you will
Just get arrested and locked up.
The pain and heartache will
Still be there in the cold daylight.
