The System, The Fist

Her is a poem by Pat Parker that I thought everyone should know. I want to bring awareness to Domestic Abuse. Whether it is the man doing the hitting or the woman, abuse is never ever ok. Many people never know what they will do in a situation until it happens to them. I am one of them. If you know some one that has been abused or you suspect of being abuse, let he or she know that you are there for them. Do not turn the other way. Violence can result in death. Please remember that. Please pass this post along. That ends my public announcement...:)

I don't want to hear
how my real enemy
is the system.
i'm no genius,
but i do know
that system
you hit me with
is called
a fist."
