Monsters

Monsters
creep round and round
no longer content to hide under the bed.
Crawling from the gutter
from stolen dreams
from abuse endured
from abandoment
from harming oneself.
Monsters find a way.
Gaining a foothold
hiding in plain sight
fooling the unsuspecting.
Using slight of hand
puffs of smoke
distraction
from the real plays.
Rear up
Rile up
Tear them all apart
until we confront the Monsters
until we no longer bargain our fears
until we stand…..
But we never will stand
The Monsters have created sheep
and with that…..
they have won.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
