Bruised And Blue - Spoken Word Poetry - Jennifer Juan

Hola amigos, sending you lots of love and light today. I created “Bruised And Blue” this evening, after spending a long time thinking about a troubling interview I read with Benjamin Zephaniah, who admitted he had been violent towards partners in the past.

 

I, like many others have experienced what it is like to be on the other side of this kind of relationship, and so I wanted to create something to express how I felt in response to what I had read, as well as drawing on my own experiences, and trying to work through them.

 

Please know that, man or woman, if you find yourself in an emotionally, physically or mentally abusive relationship, there are people who want to help you. It isn't your fault, and you are not alone.
