changing victim status
taking control
loving yourself first

I do not give your fists opportunity

I won't hear your mean words

I select to miss your company

To void your threats of seeing you no more

It no longer matters that you are my father, mother or child

Or someone who should support, protect or respect me

So long awaited I now turn away

to save myself

I am no doubt far from perfect

But no one deserves to be punched, kicked or thrown

Or cast out from being part of family

Lied to or about, threatened,

Or cursed at or put down

Now it's my repair time

My time to heal damage done

It is hard however to do this

With my loved ones gone

However time now to love me

My new number one
