Self inflicted punishment,
Afraid of reaching the end of the rope,
Fears without fundament?
Perhaps just another never-ending loop; no hope?
Criminals used to be whipped for minor offenses,
Children get abused for being innocent.
Why are we becoming senseless?
Understanding has become that difficult?
Impatiently we let the urge to take over
To overpower our breath
The victim and the abuser we become; a weird hangover?
Civil death or dance of death?
Whipping and abuse
Are there any difference?
One hurts and the other leave a bruise?
One is full of hate and the other with indifference?
