When was the moment you decided to walk away?
Was it the first time he hit you and called you names?
Perhaps it was the second time?  Then he tried to kiss and hug your hurt away. With his sweet words, he soon convinced you to stay.

When was the moment you decided to walk away?
Was it the first time he pulled your hair and gave you a black eye?
Perhaps it was the third time? Then he tried to kiss and hug your hurt away. Again, with his sweet words, he soon convinced you to stay.

When was the moment you decided to walk away?
Was it the first time he slammed the door against your back?
Perhaps it was the fourth time?  Then he tried to kiss and hug your hurt away. Again and again, with his sweet words, he soon convinced you to stay.

When was the moment you decided to walk away?
Was it the first time he hit your pregnant tummy?
Perhaps it was the fifth time?  Then he tried to kiss and hug your hurt away. This time, his words were not as sweet, but he soon convinced you to stay.

When will you finally decide to have the courage to walk away? Will it be the first time he hits your child?
