Scared

Trapped,
Trapped in this same nightmare;
Nowhere to evade my problems;
Time to face my fear;
I can't do it;
Frantic I was;
My feet began to hit the ground and I began to run;
I heard frenetic screams and the sound of feet that were not mine;
I called out to my dead mother,
"Please take me home,I cant do this, I cant be without you, I cant do this on my own"
I called out to her;
But she didn't hear me;
Not because she was dead;
She was very much alive;
But she was dead to me,
Dead to my cries;
Dead to my troubles;
Numb to my pain;
Rain fell from my eyes;
Lightning so thick and strong I felt;
This nightmare was real;
Closer and closer the footsteps came;
Farther and farther I tried to slip into the darkness;
Hoping I could escape knowing that it was no escape;
Nonetheless I tried;
Finally the footsteps stopped;
I closed my eyes;
Scared of what was going to happen next;
Suddenly something yanked me up;
I opened my eyes and looking back at me....
was me;
No longer was I scared;
I was ready;
Someone once said,
"I was ready to take on the whole world"
