Blood dripping down my face
Bruised and bloody knuckles
But still alive
I stand over your body
Looking down in satisfaction
Hint of a smile on my lips
You will never hurt anyone
About “An End And A Beginning”:
Have you guys ever seen a movie with Jennifer Lopez called Enough? If you haven’t, I would highly recommend watching it. Is it the most realistic? No. But it’s still a really good movie. It’s quite old and I watched it quite a while back but for whatever reason I was thinking about it yesterday. And that’s what inspired “An End And A Beginning”. If you’ve watched the movie, you’ll understand why. If you haven’t, basically the movie is about a woman that is stuck in an abusive marriage and the movie is basically about how she fights for herself and her daughter. And how she escapes her abusive husband.
You may have noticed this in my writing but I dislike the whole damsel in distress cliche. I like the women in my writing to be tough and capable. And it’s okay to be vulnerable too. But I also just like to make sure that people remember that women are a lot stronger than often depicted.
Disclaimer/Trigger Warning: The song below is quite dark and discusses domestic violence/abuse. If that’s triggering please don’t watch/listen to it.
