Experienced?

Isnít it OK
when your welfare mama
gets out all those familiar tools
making screams outta her pain?

Isnít it OK
when your drunken, bewildered father
beats her, leaves her a bloody mess
then comes lookin for you?

Isnít it OK
when the gangsters break in
rape your spouse over, over, over
then finish with laughing torture?

Isnít it OK
when the other inmates
hold you down, cursing and screaming
and no one ever comes to rescue?

Isnít it OK
when your child rebels, snaps
mirrors the generational rage
seemingly without beginning nor end?

Isnít violence OK
when it has a life of itís own
a monster grown, cultivated
and released with experience?

It's never OK when there's human suffering involved.
You present doors, behind which most have no desire to look.
The writing is strong and real. It touches nerves.  Many lives  are lived in quiet despiration!
Live on in peace!

It's a shame that many people actually experience these things every day. Very sad.
Well written poem!

I know.  I also know this, and it may be surprising to some, but being punched in the face does not hurt--it's the HEALING that hurts like hell.
