Black Poetry : Domestic Violence

I remember the first time
Do you
The house was a mess
We knocked everything off the table
I was hospitalized and found stable
A busted lip, a fractered hip
A black eye, a swollen thigh
And all you had was my blood
My lover
My enemy
I'm afraid of you
Cause there's nothing I can do...
To stop you
Wait, wait
Don't hit our son is in the other room
Remember that night
We had a fight
You broke my water
Cause I told you I wanted a daughter
Remember the time I almost died
Do you remember those nights
The nights that I cried
It wasn't always that way
But I refuse to stay
I'm leaving
And I'm taking my son with me
You can't stop me
Don't try it
Put your hands down
Cause I'll stab you like Keke Wyatt
And bury you underground
So sit down and reminice
Cause I'm going out of town
And you're going to miss this chick
You beat me for years
Why? I don't know
Was it a show
If so I didn't enjoy it
I'm not an animal
It's not fair
Remember the time you beat me with a chair
Remember the time you put fire to my hair
I do
That's why I can't be with you

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
