~ The Real Monster ~


The safest place to be at night, is tucked up in bed tight. But what if in the night, your dreams come to life. The monster comes out and takes away your will. My heart and soul are sitting cold and still. Afraid to move, afraid to say. Monsters are not real and go away. They still haunt, they still taunt. Want to be free is all I want. Kill the demon and cut off his head. To make me feel safe to sleep safely in bed. Haunting since a wee little girl. But you won't ruin my world. Because I am strong and won't back down. I am fearless and I won't be on the ground. If I stand big and tall. I can break my fall. I can concur it all. I will always defeat you, I will always win. You will never ever hurt me again. No more blood and tears will I shed. Now I can safely rest my exhausted head.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
