The Monster Within

The Monster Within short poem

Photo by Jram23

Crying to know
Desperate for answers
Screaming silently
No one knows

The uncontrollable tears
The fighting within oneself
Why her?
What did she do?

A secret so disturbing
Being told no one will believe you
A cycle of abuse
A cycle of fear

A monster within
A saint outward
The knowledge in his eyes
That he has succeeded

No justice will be served
He’ll die knowing he’s free
All those women and girls
All tormented in their minds

You think you’re numb
You think you’ve forgotten
You think there’s no way
You’ll ever be free

You bury it
But it surfaces its demonic head
You banish it repeatedly
But it breaks the barriers

How can one truly be free?
How can one escape the madness that is?
Desperate for answers
A broken soul cries

I have 2 beautiful daughters, 2 adorable step-sons and am married to the most incredible man in the world. I have some great family and friends and altho my life has its upsetting moments, it's all so worth it in the end. i love you guys<3<3<3I write poetry. I come off as being a bit of a hardcase but once you get to know me, I'm one of the nicest people. I'm a really big softie I cry at disney movies lol. I'm 5'7" with a slim figure and I have hazel eyes. I'm always changing my hair colour. I wear glasses. I'm not perfect and I tend to be fairly outspoken. I am who I am and I'm not going to change for anyone as people have tried to change me. It hasn't worked. You can take away my self-esteem self confidence and self respect but you will never take away my pride
