The Child (Poem)

The Child

Fighting through the layers
Fighting through the masks
Too much piled up
Too afraid to ask

Reaching out for help
Silent ways unseen
I hate the fakeness
Yet it piles onto me

First the thinker, animal
Demon, then the child
Feel something past that
But see dark for miles

She hates thinker, hates child
Wants animal and demon
All pieces, hates pieces
Of the man that is beneath them

Thought they’d keep me safe
But I’m trapped in one place
The armor drags me down
Can’t stand under the weight

Have to let go
How do you let go?
When the thing that kept you safe
Is what takes away your soul?

It’s not enough to walk away
They surrounded me
Have to kill every piece
To finally be free

Thinker, animal
Demon could take a while
But the only thing I really fear
Is killing off the child
