National Poetry Writing Month – 4/28

Standard

And They Wonder Why

People put you down
For years
Walk all over you
For years
Use you
For years
Blame you for everything
For years
Call you names
For years
Beat you down mentally
For years
Beat you down physically
For years
Make you afraid to speak up
For years
Make you afraid for your life
For years
And then they get surprised
When one day
You make them afraid.
