The nights were always scary **trigger***
The nights were always scary because the monster always came
He wasn't any casual stranger.. for, he held the family name
What made him o so scary were the bad things he would do
He made me feel so awful; then threatened me when he was through
My sister, she also knew him; but she was much braver than I
She ran away from all the bad stuff but I was too scared to try
So while my sis was beginning the journey to become whole
I was busy dodging the monster who was trying to kill my soul.
Its a shame that a child should suffer or ever experience pain
For tragedies that happen in childhood throughout a life can remain
The formative years are precious and when they're lost through hurt
The adult survivor will struggle with identity and self worth.
