Look at me now

Look at me now! 

I am finally happy. My parents both loved me but one day I heard them argue and fight and was thinking, is this about me?

Look at me now! 

I never thought this life would be so beautiful. I got a nice place to sleep and beautiful flowers. I can no longer hear my parents argue and fight and think, was this about me?

Look at me now! 

I am wondering what my parents are thinking now that I got a nice place to sleep and beautiful flowers and thinking, was this about me?

They are now probably thinking our child will no longer be because of you and me. I just happened to get in the way one day of an argument and fight not knowing, I would no longer be.

Look at me now! 

I have a nice place to sleep and beautiful flowers right on top of me. I happy now and no longer with you, but I am with Thee. Just look at me now!

Dedicated to the women of Abuse

I got flowers today.
It wasn't my birthday or any other special day.
We had our first argument last night,
And he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me.
I know he is sorry and didn't mean the things he said.
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today.
It wasn't our anniversary any other special day.
Last night, he threw me into a wall and started to choke me.
It seemed like a nightmare.
I couldn't believe it was real.
I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.
I know he must be sorry.
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today,
and it wasn't Mother's Day or any other special day.
Last night, he beat me up again.
And it was much worse than all the other times.
If I leave him, what will I do?
How will I take care of my kids?
What about money?
I'm afraid of him and scared to leave.
But I know he must be sorry.
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today.
Today was a very special day.
It was the day of my funeral.
Last night, he finally killed me.
He beat me to death.
If only I had gathered enough courage and strength to leave him,
I would not have gotten flowers...today.
