I Couldn'T Fight Back - Poem by Amy Louise Kerswell

I knew I was defeated.
I knew I had lost.
I couldnt fight back.
I had lost all over again.
A life controlled
By bastards.
Rape and abuse.
Was to take over me.
Each new time.
I was as powerless as the last.
I tryed to fend them off.
But I couldnt.
I was forced to stay still.

So I detached myself
From reality.
Pretended it was all a dream.

Only it was real.
And it was happening.
I tryed to fight back.
But as always I lost.
