No More Drama by VisualPoetress No More Drama by VisualPoetress
About: It is often the silent, hidden most common form of abuse.

I was abused as a child, and all of my adult life up until just recently. It is taking everything I have inside of me to overturn the bad memories of the past.

But if someone reaches out to you, give them ear it is always good to have someone to talk to; and remember there is always counseling available near you and please protect yourself at all times. Verbal abuse can also escalate to physical abuse. And remember women and men can be emotionally abused too.

The important thing is you, take care of yourself. Because I am living proof it can get better after time.

Here are two numbers to call, if you ever feel like you are in danger:

National Domestic Violence Hotline (in the US)
1-800-799-SAFE (7233)

and 911

I'm sure you know, it's easy to say "Enough is enough", but to actually come through to doing it is a different story. I tried to live with my grandma, but my mom would come marching and taking me back to that worthless man she calls a lover. I wish to God that she'd just leave him, but even after I managed to seperate them a few years ago, he came crawling back and she didn't hesitate to let him back in. So the time for me, to take my life into my own hands, will only happen in a year and half, when I graduate. And that day just seems to come slower and slower. I guess what I'm trying to say, is you're lucky that you got away. And I pray for all those who haven't that they will one day manage to do so.

You're poem is very inspirational, and I really like it. Good work.

I know hun it is hard, I was abused in the worst kind of way when I was a child, I couldn't wait until I graduated so I could leave. 11 days after I graduated, I went in the military and went to Germany and got the hell away from him.

I was listening to Mary J. Blige's song No More Drama and started to think about all the awful things that have happened from then unil just recently:
