Abuse and heaven

Joshua 1895 (Vinukonda, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh,) – 1971 (Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, India)

Those who suffer from it know it.
Those who watch it thinks it's some game they are playing.
And for those who do it, act like they are a demon sent from hell to abuse the weak.
It comes in many forms, but it doesn't matter what form it is in, for it hurts all the same.
A relief from abuse would be like heaven.
Leaving it all behind a sweet dream, or a ride on cloud 9.
Many people stand at heaven's gate everyday in everyway.
Deciding if it is time to take the step into the abyss, and escape from the torture.
But we should not let them.
For what they seek can be found in this life.
Please. Help end abuse.
Save us. Help us. We want to end our existence on this earth.
Don't let us...
