Abuse of Power

Every day is a beautiful day.
Every day you give a helping hand.
Every day you go a bit further to do better.
Every day you think it won’t end.

One day after many years have gone by, you wake up to face your biggest fear.
What you have loved and given so much of yourself too, is taken away.
Your hard work, your caring ways, your helping hand that touched many wounded hearts won’t make a difference in their political eyes.

It is the abuse of power and the selfishness acts of one human being that can take away what you wish would stay. You desperately seek for help, but help is no where to be found. Perhaps the one help you had hopes for, turns out to want more.

You stand in the moment and don’t know what to do. Do you give up standing up for yourself or do you allow for the continuance of abuse? Every day a tear is shed and after months and days of pain, you give in to their ways. You walk out with empty hands and tears are still left to be shed.

What you loved to do the most is gone away. All is left are the memories of the many lives you touched, the smile on many faces, and the ringing of prayers through many phases. Abuse of power stands strong and victory is their song.

Many think of abuse happening only between a woman and a man but little do they know that there is more to that five letter word. It is a cycle that only the victim can break. There is no help and therefore you are the only one left standing. The only way to break away is to give in to their political ways or to walk away.

If you are the bread and butter for your little ones, you cannot walk away. Instead you continue to work under the control and abuse of power in hopes that one day it will all go away.

What difference is there between the physical abuse of a woman victimized by her abuser and the abuse that one is submitted to by the one in power? Many preach on domestic abuse, many give to the cause of stopping abuse, and many have sworn to do their best in ending abuse. However, reality is that abuse of power is not going anywhere. Politics and those in high positions only energize the abuser in power and tear apart the powerless.

If your soul can understand the meaning in these words and if your persona has been submitted to these awful ways, just remember:

Every day is a beautiful day.
Every day you can continue to give a helping hand.
Every day you can continue to go further and do better.
Every day you can hope that abuse of power will end.
