Terror reigns in my mind.
Fear grips my heart.
There’s an enemy in every shadow.
Yet I’m all alone here in the dark.
I try to run as fast I can,
Footsteps are pounding in my ears.
I trip and fall and bang my knee,
And fight back all my tears.
I crawl my way to safety, unable to stay upright.
When at last I reach that glorious switch,
and turn on my house’s lights.
