I saw the line, I saw the hook,
But somehow I didn’t think
I’d ever fall for it.
To me it seemed like just a game,
I could always swim away.
But somehow I got too close,
And got caught upon the hook,
I struggled to get away from it,
But the more I tried
The deeper the hook did seem
To dig into my flesh.
The line was long and the more I swam,
into deeper waters I did get,
But still there was no escape,
From the hook that had slipped into my flesh.
It’s slowly getting darker now,
The sun has lost its shine,
I hope the hand that holds the line,
Will be kind enough to me,
To draw in the line, remove the hook
And somehow set me free.
Sometimes people get into situations they can handle only to find out that they are in way too deep and there is no escape.
When you are feeling down and out and your heart is filled with despair, know that there is one you can talk to and he always care. In the midst of your heartache whisper a little prayer. God is always listening. He will heal your wounds and take away your cares.
This year I plan to focus a lot more on my writing and promoting my books. I might even ask you guys to give me an honest review on my current work in progress- ALONE GIRL- This is a story of a girl and her struggles as she seeks acceptance of a father who rejects her and tries to find her place in the world.
Look out for more post on this topic. By the way here is a glimpse of my cover idea. Tell me what you think of it.
A majority of women get into relationships having no idea that their intended partners are abusers. This happens because you cannot tell that a man is an abuser simply by looking at him. He often appears to be your regular nice guy. He puts on the charm. He wines and dine you and make you feel important. He says the right words that you want to hear.
However charming he may appear at first be careful and take nothing for granted. Keep your eyes open for any warning signs that he may not be all that he wants you to believe that he is because he could be an abuser.
One of the first signs to watch for is ‘Isolation’. One of the first things he may try to do is isolate you from your friends and relatives. If he wants you to cut ties with your friends don’t for one moment believe that he is thinking of your best interest. If he tries to keep you away from your family or try to make you choose between your family and him be warned; he is up to no good. He could be setting the stage for abuse!
When he gets you in a position where you are isolated from your family and friends it gives him power over you because when the abuse starts you will find yourself alone with no one to come to your aid and that is exactly what he wants. Do not ignore that first clue!
