Next Time ...

Joyce C. Lock

I'm all alone, now,
Don't know what else to do.
Can't look you in the face
'Cause it's all red, black, and blue.

I should have watched my mouth.
I could have done my best.
Next time, I'll be more careful.
I'd better get some rest.

If you see him in the church choir,
Don't tell him you were here.
A wife must be obedient.
Things will be better next year.

Love has no limits.
Abuse has no barriers.
Next time could be the last.
