He Treated Her Better Than Anyone




He Treated Her Better Than Anyone

He treated her better than anyone
And she had the marks to prove it.

He treated her better than anyone
Which is why he called her stupid.

He treated her better than anyone
He would remind her with each blow.

He treated her better than anyone
He would yell at her so.

He treated her better than anyone
Her friends all thought she was lucky.

He treated her better than anyone
After all, he did think she was pretty.

Then one day, she grew strong 
She grew bold
She learnt to move on.

She deserved to be treated better than that.

She deserved to feel loved 
To feel safe 
To be hugged.

She deserved to be happy 
To be wanted 
To be classy.

She deserved to be treated better than that.

She learnt she was smart, 
Had a worth, 
Had a heart.

She learnt she deserved to be treated better than that.
It was her brother who 
Helped her see that.

Powerful words. I used to work with domestic abuse survivors, and I would have given them this to read if I still did.
