October is the month for horror and scaring,
but this is reality and I need to share it.
My friend was murdered by someone she loved.
I never knew until she died. It was a secret she kept.
Her secret came out when it was too late.
I’m writing this poem to bring awareness.
Domestic violence could take your life forever.
Don’t keep it a secret, don’t make that mistake.
Say something to someone, your life is at stake.
I would do anything to save her. I feel powerless.
Hoping these words may be able to save someone else.
