The Buck Stops Here!

I’ve seen the ugly, 

I’ve watched the one I love torture my heart and the heart of my children because he was in pain. 

I sat back and and just took the verbal beatings and collected emotional scars, watched my children’s hearts bleed.

I let it break me down and cause me to lash out.

I  defended the pain caused at the hand of my lover like it was a pain I deserved. 

I became ugly and let it corrode my heart and mind. 

Then I cried for help I didn’t actually want. 

Until. ..

My eyes were open to their pain, my heart ached for their future and my daughter’s  face in my place came to mind. 

I was setting her up to be right here enduring  the same unnecessary pain. 

No more!

The buck stops here!

    MANY people need to decide that. So many spin their wheels their entire life, never realizing the logic

      I know. I just had to have my eyes open to see that this was a pattern I was about to keep my family stuck in if I didn’t decide to change it. Hopefully many people will make that choice
