Domestic Violence Awareness Month: “Jill’s” Story

Up against the wall… there you were

Dangling inches above the ground

Suddenly I was drowning with the sounds

Of your aching screams of pain

My vision was blurred with roaring streams

That were forming in my eyes,

What do I do was the question of the hour

Do I let this one pass by

Or do I start to scream and shout

What do I do, what do I do…What do I do?

The white telephone beginning to form in the corner of my eye

Like the sun trying to beam through a rain cloud,

Finally I was blinded by that beam of sun

I turned around and dialed those foridded numbers


Thank you, Jill, for the touching poem. Thank you for sharing what it was like for you to witness this, and thank you for being brave and saving your mom.

You are strong.

You are brave.

You are loved.

You are safe.
