Domestic violence

A new decade, yet an old societal odd stayed,

An individual afraid, manifold tragic stories left unsaid,
One's perpetual prayers failed, the other's arrogance gained,
Suffocate, hate, degrade, and slayed,
Within any face or colour it snakes,
Domestic violence cuts across any lake.

A new decade, yet an old societal odd stayed, 
In the psychological, emotional or physical form it may break, 
A living-hell domestic violence phrased. 
Synthetic drugs, threats and power, they aim, 
Perhaps more education is what we should claim?
