Clearing the Air With My Sister Elizabeth Faye
Clearing the Air
With My Sister Elizabeth Faye

You said that,
because I was a teen-age woman;
because I didn't scream;
because I didn't fight;
because I didn't tell;
what he did wasn't rape.

I say that,
because he used fear to control;
because he forced unwanted attention on me;
what he did was rape.
