Monsters

The sun is going down now
And I'm starting to be afraid
It always comes at night
Even when I've obeyed

There's nowhere for me to turn
It says I can't tell anyone
I feel so all alone
There's nowhere for me to run

I don't want to go to school
I don't want to play with friends
Mom is so impatient with me
Why can't she make this end

The monster is so ugly
So big, so very strong
It won't let me cry
It stays with me so long

It always comes at night
Maybe I'm just dreaming
Maybe it's just nightmares
But somehow I'm always bleeding

I want to run away from here
And never ever come back
Sarah has a monster too
Only hers is black

We'll run away together
From the monsters that are bad
We'll go where they can't get us
The monsters that are Dad

Eph 6:4

Thank you so much for crafting a strong and heart-felt poem for this effort. I stand with Xavier in thanking everyone who raises their voice to ending sexual violence against women and children. I remain deeply moved by your words.
