I'Ll Never Forget

I never forget what happened
I'll never forget what they did.
They used rape and abuse
To have power over me.

I'll always remember
Will I ever forget.
I long to break free
And take back my life.
The rape and abuse
Has held me back for to long.

One day I will reclaim
What was taken from me

Words like these never fade, Ali. Lovely poem. Susie.
Ali I agree with David and Duncan both of them know what they are talking about. They are both very good poets. they have found a young sprouting poet and I have too, don't let any one discourage you/just let the pen do the work if you do this the pen will take over and you will become a true poet, like Dunan and David. cheers Sylvie
Amazing! A seed of something beautiful contained in something very painful.You have the poets gift of being able to really move the reader.Love Duncan
Evidence will long last for generations. This bittersweet memories we keep as evidence to the others of our existence.A very emotional poem Ali.
