Why?Why do I speakwhen everyone would prefer quiet?Why do I show my facewhen everyone finds it appalling?Why do I trywhen everyone finds annoyance?Why do I liveif everyone wants me dead?I speakso I can spread God's word.I show my facebecause God loves the sight.I try hardbecause God wills me to.I livebecause God gave me the gift to.
Anything.We waited in silence,For a sound.Something..Anything really.But nothing ever happened,And no one ever came.We waited for him.But he never came.A long plane ride in bitter silence,Left alone with a crushing reality.He was never coming home.And we realize that no amount of wishin will bring him back to us.But still we wait.Wondering.Wondering if he watches us or turns away in shame?Wondering if he's proud of who we became?Wondering if he will visit our dreams anymore?We wonder..And we wait in silence.For a sound.Something..Anything.
The eyes of a child.Adults forget how to see, how to really see.Society teaches them to ignore it,to ignore what they should see.But a child does not bend to these rules,not a single one does.They see them,the monsters of the night that are hidden by the darkness.I know that you know what I'm talking about.The 'thing' under your bed,the 'thing' in you closet,the 'thing' that follows you up the stairs to your room when the house is dark.Children can see 'it', hear it and they know 'it'.Adults can't.Some feel it,when the fear is clawing them,that's the moment,they feel 'it'.And teenagers,these tormented,poor Souls.They already were taught that these 'things' don't exist,so they cannot see,but they know 'it' is waiting.So let me re-teach you the rules,do not forget them again.1. As long as you can see 'it', it also sees you. Use your blanket to shild yourself.2. Do not make a sound.3. If you move, it'll know you're still awake, because it can tell.4. The only rescue is
BullyShh.Shut up.Don'tSayAnything.Run.Faster.Faster.Faster.Stop.Scream.Fear.Die.Demons in the shadowsTwistingTurningStaring.Watch yourselfBleeding.Quiet now.Hush, child.They'll find a wayTo get you.Beatings, swallowing you.Scars, defining you.You.Breaking.Crying.Dying.After allYou know you're weak.You can't fight a bullyWhen the bully's inside of you.
