Megan, Age 11, Vernon, BC

I close the door, and hide in my bed,
My heart starts to beat, I'm filled with dread.
Waiting under the covers, afraid to open my eyes,
I try to forget all those terrible lies.
The shouting, each scream
Oh, how I wish it was all a dream.

They told me that everything would be alright,
But they never told me that they would fight!
I wish that all the pain would just melt away,
I don't want to listen to what they have to say.
Dad, you ruined the life I once had,
Mom, why did you have to make me so sad?
They open the door, I'm about to be revealed,
As I accept a new life, my old one is sealed.
