Too Often

Location

 

If there was one thing I could end,

It would be Abuse.

I never experienced such phenomena myself, and I am thankful.

However, others are not so fortunate.

Too often, children are struck with fists and belts by their own parents.

Too often, teenagers are disowned and homeless, simply because they are queer.

Too often, unscrupulous men assault women, physically, mentally and sexually.

Too often, animals in the slaughterhouse endure unspeakable torture before they are finally killed.

If I had the power, I would shift Abuse’s frequency from “too often” to “never.”
