"The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for."-Bob Marley


Darkening shadows rise to my wall
Threatening, finding all and all
Keeping the light so far away
Vanishing safety moving with day

Hiding in corners
Like war disturbed mourners
Refusing to see
The reflection of me

Little feet quake
Teeny arms shake
Eyes squeeze shut
Like a sword has cut

I'm small and defenseless
Much too young
Mother comes in
Soft whispers "Oh hun,"
But shadows still come
As they always will
For light and dark
Shall never stay still
