    From the poem "It Ain't Yours"

    If you have to take it
    You really don't want it
    You just want to control it
    By instilling pain and fear in who it belongs to

    Real men never take it
    They respect it
    Love it
    They do what's needed and desired
    So she lovingly gives it

    And when it's given
    It's time to have it
    And then, and only then
    There is nothing like it
    But when you take it
    You have nothing

    so true

    and when he takes what he wants, he doesn't know he's taking so much more..her dignity, her self respect, her worth as a woman...and she either fights back or breaks apart...

    so much more beautiful for the love to be given....
