WHY SO HARD ?

WHY SO HARD,

Why,so hard!?
why is it so hard to be
just be
here and there
stand tall
in front off trials
why is it so hard to be
just be
here and there
being torn apart!
being slapped!
why is it so hard to be
just be
here and there
she cant think
she cant be
she cant move
she cant talk
just a shadow
a puppet in her abusive husband’s hands!
her face is not lit by a smile
when she looks at you
she hardly dare turn her eyes towards you!
why is it so hard to be
just be
here and there
the load is heavy
the heart is crying
crying for a friend to hear
to see
to smile
to love
to help!
where are you gone my youth?
my tears are before me!
my years are gone!
why is it so difficult to be
just be
here and there."
this is an homage to all those abused women that I have known and those I will never know.

Artist's Description

Having been working in a Women’s shelter, I feel obliged to talk about this subject, of abuse within the family!
Men , too can be abused! so here I am not emitting a value judgement!
