life may not always be easy, there are things you wish to forget, but have to remember, there's a past and a future.

You sit in the corner 

with blood running down 

you don't want to move 

you don't want to make a sound

 

You lock the door 

scared of the beast outside

you listen close 

to see if it's still alive

you look through the crack 

to see the beast open one more

 

you creep back to the cornner

trying so hard not to make noise

your room goes dark

as you cry tears, that nobody hears...

 

you wake up to knocks on your door 

your father walks in woundering whats wrong 

you sit up all covered in sweat

explaining you had a dream from the past

your father smiles 

and says everythings alright

he turns and leaves 

and doesn't look back

 

you rush out of bed 

andd get dress in a snap

but as you put on your shirt 

you see scars that are left

 

 

you brush it off with a smile 

and make it look like everythings alright 

 

you run outside to play 

you throw balls and skip

and have a good day

 

at the end 

all you do is look forward

and never back
