 childhood abuse (my story using rhyme)


Scary thoughts as darkness falls,
Until my eye's get heavy and begin to close.
Then into my head pictures appear,
Beautiful dreams full of hope not fear.

So why is it life can't be the same,
Full of happiness instead of a game.
Dreams seem so real i hate to wake up,
For dawn to arise i much prefer dusk.

But as the day breaks,
And my dreams start to fade.
The uneasy feeling of life,
As i start to awake.

It's up to me only,
To change what i can.
To bring dreams to reality,
And the world to my hand.

Life's complicated matters,
Shouldn't keep you awake.
Just put down your head,
sleep dream and trust your fate.
