Poem by Doniell Cushman
Battlezone of Destruction
I'm tired of this back and forth
Seeing my husband cry daily
Scars my wounded heart
Your flippancy is more than I
Due to unprecedented behavior
My state is now my enemy
And I am reluctant to enter the
Battlezone without a better plan
Thinking back to when you didn't
allow your daughter to be destroyed
And I call it ruined because
She had no concept of trauma
Because of you I must continue
to pray for her heart and her
