Break the Silence: An Anthology Against Domestic Violence is a wonderful book on poetry dealing with domestic abuse of women, and men. While reading through the poems contained herein, one realizes the true travesty of domestic violence and how that violence spreads past the home life and into the community and world. Instead of Silence, time has long come for speak up, and write out about this world wide issue. Each poem is special and unique, stressing real life, and what happens to both men and women, as well as even the worst part of being murdered. I am honored to be the first reviewer on Amazon for this Five Star read. My contribution below:
