Escaping the Nightmare
Ghouls and ghosts surround me;

Skeletons are such a fright –

Haunting me throughout all time…

I’m a prisoner to the night !!

Are my screams loud enough?

True, I walked through this door…

Seeking what I thought was fun –

But now I want no more !!!

Voices dance around my head,

Howling louder than His voice;

Still, I hear His almost whisper –

“Child, you have a choice.”

Oh, what Peace consumed those Words!

In an instant I got up and ran,

Leaving the chains behind me

To embrace the heart of “I am”.
