same as you

South Africa

you look at her as if she is not one of your own,
her man beats her up in front of you,
her screams is your business,
one day it was you who got beaten up,
has same bruises, scratch marks as you,
same hurting voice as you,
she is even the same gender as you,
neighbours came to your rescues,
why do you make her non of your business?
