Dangers Of The Dark
Joanita D'souza, Grade 9
Reborn from death; a new life in this world
Able to see, now the fog has been cleared.
Looking around as my vision’s unfurled,
A child’s worst nightmare, more than what’s feared.
For me, the immortal, the endless clock chimes;
I sleep an eternity, awaiting the night.
As day is at end, and the sun no longer shines,
I awaken to the moon’s silvery light.
Unleased in dark; lurking the shades,
Like a hungry wild lion, I hunt.
Lust takes over and humanity fades;
Leaving a demonic beast to confront.
Brought to existence through what seemed like a kiss,
It’s mark everlasting and impossible to miss.
