Hidden within the four walls
of the house down the street,
lies and secrets dwell.
Few have heard the silent screams,
now shut away behind an old bedroom door.
Five years of a young life,
locked away in a man-made hell.
Nightmares and shadows
keep a young girl in a prison of pain,
where a trusted soul holds the key.
Fear burns at her own soul,
hate now takes over the love in her heart.
Torn apart little by little,
day after day.
Afraid and worn down,
forced to face the dark alleys alone.
longing for power.
One little girl,
unable to defend herself.
empty lies become her truth.
everything she's grown up believing in.
