If You Go Back

Cover Image

You're lucky now
that after all the unprotected
you've never gotten knocked up.

But just imagine if you brought
his baby
into the world -

A baby who would have to listen
to the screaming
and see his mother shaking in
crying as his father traps her
inside the house
fight with her for wanting to
see her friends and family -
calling her sick in the head until
she became sick in the head.

Imagine that baby growing into a man
and beating his wife
because that's what he learned -
or that baby becoming a beautiful woman
who let herself get mixed up with
men who'd rape her -
because she didn't learn to respect herself.

Imagine if you kept going back to him
and doing what you're doing
Imagine now if there was a baby.
