Why Does It Have To Be Like This?
Jeffery A Sanders Sr. ~Featuring Author Dawn Desi Banks
UN-be knowing it exist and we need to stop trying to hide
This monster that affects human existence
Why does it have and continues to be like this
Physical, sexual, emotional abusing
Why can’t we be, friends, lovers, wife husbands and
Significant others…domesticated and work together
I don’t understand why you are so angry
You won’t communicate and I’m always in this position
To try and keep you calm, but you take it to an explosive level
Having me feeling like I’m sleeping on egg shells
This is traditional…
Don’t know emotional;
Just physical; Brought up this way…
Angry; upset; full of rage….
I want to seek another way; s
Sick inside this was me since birth;
Instilled all of my days…
Saw grandpa and grandma live it…
Mama and daddy relived it…You don’t get it!
I don’t comprehend how to be a friend, a lover, or a wife;
Don’t know the meaning of husband and how he could be
A special part of my life…There is no communication;
Just evil temptations…To hurt you; use you, blame you…
For all of my past troublesome woes…
Don’t you see I’m lost in a world of darkness?
Full of black and blues…Just what I want to do to you…
Crying out!!! Damn you!!
You’re my excuse for abuse;
Yet you have no clue!
There are many of things,
That creates this thing called domestic violence
Long been familiar with these distinctions
These conceptual elements in each experience and
The character on the stage of this disease,
This character is made clear by the amount of Fear
He or she makes one digest between which one is sandwiched
So clear they form a context as he or she defends
A much broader front in old schemas of perception in
The fog of definition as they continue to ignore the
Ideal construct as a factor for the present
They are capable of being made transparent to understanding
If their mind are capable of penetrating to its essential core
But they must learn the path is out in front, but individual
Decisions to leave are before them…
Come forth out of this world of darkness
Domestic Violence; It’s EVERYBODY’S Business.

I sit in the forte of solitude
In the moment of how these emotions
Produced by challenging circumstances of
Yet I come upon the scaffolding of praise
Intention becomes more important than consequences
An action of the actor’s intention
As well as the consequences
Conceived of as unchangeable properties of the world
Removed from the control of people
