Monsters in the house

Sun, 03/13/2016 - 14:21 -- Eva16

Many children are scared

of monsters under the bed

though adults know

it's all in their head

Though other children fear

monsters in the house

they must run and hide

be quiet as a mouse

as they rampage through

big, blundering, and mean

if they find you, they'll hurt you

so you mustn't be seen

You learn how they sound

so yourself you can brace

even now, the jingle of keys

makes my heart race

Eventually you'll escape

though your fear is instilled

the nightmares still come

the memory won't be killed

Juse know you can live

a happy life that's long

your past doesn't define you

you're eternally strong

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
