Domestic violence can happen anywhere to anyone of any race, religion, culture or economic status. Statistical someone is emotionally mentally abused, killed, rapped, injured, tortured, every second of the day somewhere in the world. Teen dating abuse and violence has reached an epidemic of abuse and is escalating way out of hand. One in three teens say they know someone who has been physically assaulted or hurt by a dating partner. Rape, sexual, mental and physical Abuse is running rampant and the damage is horrific on any level. It's extremely important for us all to know the signs what the cycle of abuse is in any circumstance or on whatever level so we can be more educated and help stop this epidemic. I have uploaded my song called 'Johnny' which tells the story of a young boy growing up into his teens that has undergone abuse on all levels from his Father. He has had to wittiness domestic Violence to his Mother on top of the sexual, physical, emotional abuse he has suffered on a day to day basis from his Father. It's a vicious circle of silence and internal torture that builds up inside Johnny and finally erupts like a deadly volcano leaving us all with a sad stark reminder of the dangers of abuse. I will sign off this blog song by saying Acknowledging someone’s feelings and realities sets a positive safety plan within our minds and hearts and the more we come together we can take affirmative action with better understanding to help so many people. Never GIVE UP, and even if it feels like you are on your own, please know you are not alone and abuse is certainly not you fault! Love and Hugs Your Musical Friend ♦☼ Bernie ♦☼.
♦☼ "Pay Her More Attention" is a song I wrote many moons ago, hightides has set on the horizon for gravitational forces for me to bring this song and meaning to the for front again. Every evening I would go to work and I met some awesome people back then. The pay was minimum but the experience was rich and life changing for me. One Particular evening while at work - my good work collogues had come to a stop, there was an air of sadness and solemn numbness like someone had died which I feel later that something had died. The Pain was high, intense, cutting, shape and her beautiful mask had slipped like broken porcelain shattering onto the ground into a million pieces with her heart on toll. I thought to myself "What on gods earth could make such a beautiful women so sad and distraught"?
The deeper her outpouring as she seeked consoling from her friends and was trying so hard not to smudge her mascara as the tears were forming and running down her face - the deeper my empathy became for her and the situation. The Pieces of the puzzle came together like broken shards of glass each more deadlier than the next it was about her man the love of her life and that everything she did for him went unnoticed. She would Cook nice meals for him, make her self up real pretty with care and affection to please him and to put fire into there love and relationship.
But - sadly lack of attention - off putting words - NO ATTENTION was coming back to her.. For example he just wanted to watch the T.V and seemed completely vacant as though she was a ghost..There was nothing I could say because the politics between a man and woman was in motion and I could tell the damage had been done and these wounds and scars were very unlikely to heal - if ever at all. So haunting leaving a curse what could have been a healthy relationship that she worked so hard to keep alive, inject so much awesomeness into - and by his controlling, mindless, selfish actions that would have certainly driven a nail right into her heart and into his own coffin which would cremate the best thing ever in his life.
I knew this man was a complete fool and had failed her miserably - in my mind there was no justification for the emotional state and damage he had done to this beautiful women. I knew there was backdated frustration and a whole world of Woman's emotions building up on top of other issues and in time the love bomb was going to go off leaving body parts, shrapnel and his heart in the lost and found department of no return. He probably though he was being clever but in turn was destroying the most important thing in his world - that's what happens when the heart is not taken seriously.
I was so secretly affected with this sad situation and decided on my way home to right a song about it - I realised this was probably happening to many other couples and Men where literally burning there bridges all over the god dam place. If only they could have seen what I saw and the real damage that they had caused. When writing the song "Pay Her More Attention" It was a salute from the Heart to all Women and a signal not to get stuck in that kind or rut or relationship - also complete anger and resentment to Men hoping that it would expose something evil within there nature. The moral of the story is for god sake treat your Woman right with respect, dignity and love - take onboard her feelings and "Pay Her More Attention"!!
I have learnt that peoples actions do certainly have a knocking effect.
Signing off with Peace, Happy Love Making and live long and prosper.....
From the little quite guy in the corner just doing his work. ♦☼ Brio'con © ♦☼
