Leopards Never Change

Afternoon friend’s and visitors…Everyday someone loses their life from a violent relationship, so I added a poem called Leopards Never Change, nobody should have to suffer this type of abuse…May the Angels guide you always…God bless, Lynn xxx



Leopards Never Change
“Of course he didn’t do it,
The bruise upon my head
I must of banged it through the night
Whilst getting out of bed
And then I tripped into the door
How clumsy I must be
I blacked my eye by accident
But my man really loves me!
At times I really wind him up
The fault is mine again
I never seem to do things right
Of course he’s not to blame!
I know I broke my shoulder
When I slipped in the bath
But he would never hurt me
Sometimes you make me laugh!
Okay you’re right, he done it
True love can sometimes be strange
He always told me he loved me
But I knew he would never change
For many years I suffered abuse
Not knowing what else to do
But leopards never change their spots
So I’m leaving now, but will YOU?"

    Lynn, I saw this poem and felt moved. Personally I have never suffered domestic abuse in a relationship, but it must be so awful for women, men & children who endure this existence.  I believe that these people aren’t only physically abusive, but mentally abusive and destroy any dignity and strength of character their partner had.  A friend of mine does voluntary work for a domestic abuse society and thank god there are places for people to go when they finally have the strength to leave the abuse and start life again. It must take so much courage to say no to this violence and begin again.  x x

    hi lynn, your poems are very sensitive to the hurts in this world, god bless you and use your words with others. as for the leopard, never changing his spots, he cant change them himself, but sometimes leopards give their spots over to god, and changes they and others never thought possible take place. but I agree this is the exception rather than the rule – sadly – and there is so much cruel unnecessary physical and mental hurt caused to children and adults alike in this world.  I looked at your picture of the leopard, and thought how innocent he could look – so often the case, so often we are deceived.  how we need the gifts of discernment and wisdom. – take care – love nita.

    I feel very strongly that no one has a right to hit another living thing.
    I have never raised a hand to any of my four children. 
     I believe that people hit or smack when they have "lost it or are no longer in control"  it is them that need to walk away and get the help.
    Love always
