The Two Faces of.......

If one thing had baffled me in life it was the two sides to people. I believe that like a rat backed into a corner people react differently to each indiviual situation. I had wondered how the arms that comforted could also cause such pain and how this confusion messes with the mind. I think the greatest betrayal is the gift of life given to parents and abused. In the 356 days of a year many were filled with violence, dysfunction and a disruption, so much so that the few days of good times became the flotation device for survival.

The arms that held,

the voice that comforted

and the hell that waited around each corner.


I think that is the hardest to deal with that in the name of love someone can beat a child and yet those same hands hold and comfort.

To the voice that remains in my heart and the emotional disruption that will forever ache deep within my soul.

Sings >Playmate, Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Holler down my rain barrel
Slide down my cellar door
And we'll be jolly friends
Forever evermore.

Just like a dog who is kicked and abused, he will still run to his master. The man may break the dog's spirit, and the dog will be shy and afraid of strangers, but he still loves his master only.
Children are the same, they will love you, they just don't like you.
Have a good weekend!
