Monster

Who is the Monster that lives under my bed? Who is it? How did it get there? Why did it choose me? Is it possible that I chose it? Will it ever leave me alone and go away? Go, go, find another person to torture with your relentless sarcastic, repetitive screams Will you try to stay and destroy every single bit of my life and me? Why do you get energised by bashing me, kicking me, and seeing me suffer? I did nothing wrong. I was simply born like children are, So, please, pretty please leave and never, ever come back.

Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time, I Found A Forbidden Forest The Forest Was A Dark Place With Large Population of Crocodiles Hiding Around Every Corner I wanted to run but I couldn’t The fear stopped me from moving I wanted to yell for help but I couldn’t My lips were stitched and my inner screams invisible I was invisible when I decided to stay in the forest to make it bright, make it work I so badly wanted something to work in my life even for a day And that made the fear worth feeling Besides by then, the forest was the only thing I knew well I cleaned and cleaned I weeded and weeded I planted and planted With time the darkness became my norm, but I never stopped believing That the Forbidden Forest could be turned into a bright little oasis of hope Hope that never dies even when the crocodiles are lurking from every corner The End 01.
