A Domestic Violence Poem


The Silent Scream


Since we have lived upon this earth,

Stories abound of “Home and Hearth”,

Of “Love and Roses” round the door,

This may be true but there is more …


Alas, a dark side doth await,

It’s time to set the record straight.

There are tales of love and tales of hate

and they go hand in hand -

Violence and cruelty coexist

on the way to the Promised Land …


We see and hear the violence more

on TV, Radio, Media - sure,

But the silent rape is behind the door

of some suburban street …

You never know where it will be -


The Silent Scream we neither hear nor see . . .
