Hard Limit

Hard Limit

“There are far too many silent sufferers.  Not because they don’t yearn to reach out, but because they’ve tried and found no one who cares.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Broken and disillusioned
She looked back once more
Became resolute and lost her cool
Loyal yet abused

No more will she run to those arms
No more will she be available to your antics
She has fought this
And it is done

Get a life traitor
Go for your match and let her loose
She’s had enough in a short space
Her hard limits is beyond her

I was just going through my anthology and I stumbled on this Thoughts of mine. I cannot even remember the date I wrote this as I always include the date and time in my write ups.

One thing I can deduce is that, the inspiration must have come while reading up on an Abuse case and while reading the notable Fifty Shades of Grey.

Why am I bringing this up now?

These days, the increase reports on abuse is becoming unbearable. When I read up these cases, I cry silently and wonder what anyone could ever have done to deserve such cruelty that is meted out to them.

And I ask myself, what will you do if you find yourself in such situation? I know many will be quick to say God forbid. But there are some things that you cannot stop or change.


That would be my option. I cannot even think of how I can endure such pains and anguish in silence. Everyone have a break point and a limit to how far they can endure. Little wonder why we have loads of cases of Depression and Suicide Attempts.

Quite a number of people have endured this for so long right from their childhood. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.

No one is created to go through spousal or childhood abuse…no matter the type of abuse it may be. Let us speak up and put an end to it. If no one around you seem to hear your cry, move out…run…escape!

Would come up with more posts and fictions about Abuse. Until then, have a beautiful Wednesday evening.

    Is this a feminist column, men suffer more in the hands of callous and wicked women that cut off their guys dick and also stab their partner to death in the name of anger.Our women have lost touch with the values of marriage,they are no longer submissive,quick to anger and always want to be in control.Men have their issues no doubt but today’s women are what ibo people refer to as tufiakwa

      No Author Jenje, this is not a feminist column. Your comment is appreciated. From the piece, you would realize I was not gender biased neither did I try to point out that only women suffer abuse. In subsequent posts, we shall iron out the issues you have raised.
