One woman, "victim", abuse;
physically, emotionally,
mentally;

The hurt, feelings,
memories that never leave,
never fade;

Thousands of women, victims;
physically, emotionally, mentally;

Who take the blame and
low self-esteem
that "one" man can do,
no remorse given;

Society, it's a man's world,
caring for the moment,
uncaring in too short a time;

Leaving "one" woman,
alone, with the hurt,
feelings,
memories that never leave,
never fade;

All the woman asks is
justice, help, love,
friendship;

ALl the woman asks is
justice, help, love,
friendship;

Thousands of woman ask
the same; "help us,"
"understand",
"feel the pain"

Walk in our shoes, judge
not as two seperate pairs,
but joined in one.

Echo this piece speaks volumes for abused women. Let it be known that it is not a man's world but our world together. It is not the pain but the joy of love we want them to feel. Abuse is a sickness. For the men that are sick I hope that they seek help. Not only for their victims but for themselves as well.
