Your Animal Side

I wrote this poem when I was 14 years old. I thought posting it today (Halloween) would be the perfect time to share. Happy Halloween! Hope you enjoy!

Your Animal Side

I hear everyone has an animal side.
What is yours?
What is mine?
No one can really know for sure.
Could it be repulsive in the dark, silent night?
Save me from this frightening thought.
I saw a creature enter my room last night.
Could it be what I think?
This is not a story because I saw it.
As horrifying as it is, I believe I saw your animal side.
It’s not ordinary.
Do you want to know what it is?
I saw a big shadow on the wall.
The eyes were blood red in the mirror.
I saw gruesome fangs.
The creature howled at the round moon
And tore into my soft, clean flesh.
I fought back, teeth sharp and hungry
Our animal side has gotten the better of us.

Don’t Fear

I used to have a lot of fear and worry when I was little, so I drummed up this poem at the top of my mind to remind myself that everything will be okay, no matter what happens. Hope you enjoy, and as always, let me know what you think!

Don’t be afraid to sleep at night
Don’t cry if the stars aren’t shining bright
Don’t fear that you won’t awake
Remember God won’t forsake

Don’t worry if you’re scared of death
Don’t stop to think you might not have another breath
Don’t hyperventilate if your tires become flat
Remember life is too short for that

Dark Secrets

I was probably in my preteens when I wrote this poem (and the poems that followed after!) No, it’s not the best, but I think it was pretty good for a child dreaming of becoming a writer. What do you think?

Something’s floating in the hall

As dark as shadows on the wall

Everyone wonders what you’re hiding

But you can’t tell them why you’re sliding

 

You hide the secrets in your mind

You let it be unknown to mankind

All of your secrets are as deep

As the dreams when you sleep

 

They fall into a cave with a locked door

You never will take anyone on a tour

You will not give away any rain

Of dark secrets that echo in your brain.
