    we have to fight for our rights all the time,
    if someone wants to have a play,
    i play with him,
    if he kicks me, i try to kick him harder,
    if he wants to hurt my personality,
    to break my pride, i break him harder.
    if we fight with devils, GOD help us to win.

    'This poem is heart wrenching........I've known so many abused woman, and have worked at safe houses, and it usually, on the average takes an abused wife 7 times to leave her husband, and even then there is no guarantee she won't eventually go back! It's a possession of sorts, he aims right for self esteem, she feel empty, and unworthy. No self confidence, and so she goes back, and, back.
    This was a well written poem, and I could feel the futility in it.
    Our society must come up with a better solution........too many abused wives are being killed.
    Good job.
    Warm Poetic Love,
