 The Forest's Secrets - Ciara Banks
 
 Branches sway gracefully, leaves crunch and tumble beneath the boots of those who enter. 
 Personal greetings are always present as the evening Coo's of night owls watch over the soft glow
 of the moonlight.
 Night prowlers tip-toe towards the thick hedges and form a gate to any unknown visitors, it's their 
 turn on patrol tonight.
 Amber eyes follow as you pass on by, whiskers twitch as your scent drifts, lots of legs scramble as you
 approach them. 
 The warm, earthy, smell of nature when taking a nightly stroll makes you feel happy, calm and peaceful,
 however not all is what it seems sometimes...
 Sometimes, it's the secrets lay deep within the heart of the forest, where nobody usually goes unless 
 they know about it. 
 Some may say its a long term vacation. others say its the broken part of the forest and nobody dares
 go there unless they are broken too.
 This part of the forest has no enchantment and happiness, only pain, hurt and anger
 and once you enter, you will never find your way out...
 well - not as the same person you were before anyway, that's a promise. 
 This is the dampest, most congested part of the forest... unfortunately for reasons
 no one likes to speak of.
 Soaked with the cries of helpless, shattered little girls and boys. Angered and hurt teens who
 have just had enough, and i guess those who dont think there is any point in trying anymore. 
 Their bones now have wore thin, their weary eyelids have settled down, their mind is finally now at 
 peace knowing there is no more damage to be done. 
 Ropes hang low, heads droop and they settle in what seems to them as ... paradise, happiness
 and unity to every scarred soul who has now had a chance to end everything. nothing can turn back
 time now, the deed is done, but the pain is gone.
