Hurt cycle

Obedience is a virtue

Questioning is from the devil

To establish my thinking ability

Is a threat to their sovergnity

To serve them was my only mission

Threatened into submission

Loved them for assaulting my dignity

Defended their cruelty

Like a prisoner

In love with her jailer

Justified the painful experience

Pushed it outside my conscious awareness

Grown into a wounded adult

My kids receive similar hurt
