Why me..what did I do..what was it about me..I didn't do anything..I never had the chance to locked in my cage from the day I met you... I had to trust you .. I had no choice...you were everything to me..everything I wanted to become and everything I looked up to...you would tell me stories  your favorite was about the monsters under the bed ..you would try  to scare me with them..i'm a little ashamed to say this..to admit to how naive I was..I thought I was scared of the monster under the bed...But I was really scared of the monster in front of me ..the one that would smile to me and wish me a good day and good night.... The one that would only show their fangs when it was only me and them..the one that would smile at me and make me feel safe only to show their true colors seconds later. As I grew so did the monster as I began to write my own story the monster erased my words and started ripping out my pages and burning them..I could feel my book come to an end as the last page was turning… but then someone shined a light on it..They told me there would be no more monsters under the bed..no more in the closet and no more in front of me. They offered me their hand and when I took it a whole new book appeared and even though It's hard to start a new one..every day I look forward to the next page.
