Favorite Quote:
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they go right. You believe lies so you eventually trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart, so that better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe

I lay there under the bed frozen;
My heart is racing and breath is rapid.
I’m exhausted from running;
My only choice was to hide.
I know he is going to find me;
With each long stride I listen.
I hear the floor boards creaking,
And with each step they are getting closer.
My stomach sinks with each and every thump;
I stop breathing, he is standing over me.
My movements and life is put to a halt,
All I can remember is the good ole times;
Playing in the yard with my friends,
Enjoying every day with my family.
I can’t see anything until I first see his knee;
Then his hand, and without hesitance his face.
I’m scared; I can’t believe he found me;
I tried to hide so well, I tried to hide all my flaws,
But there he was, reality, it found me, and this is not a dream.
