Monsters in my head, monsters in my mind, monsters in the night, monsters all the time.
They're lurking in the shadows, lurking in the light, preying on innocent victims, they have you in their sight!
They're someone meant to protect you, love and respect you, yet they manipulate, take advantage, violate and subject you.
Parents hide your children, watch for warning signs, I'm speaking from experience, it's happened many times.
These predators seek specific children then take advantage of their vulnerabilities, they feed on trusting victims then violate them sexually.
You're screaming on the inside, yet no one else can see, it happens over and over again, please someone help me!
Feelings of confusion, guilt, isolation and shame, it's hard to comprehend, you'll never be the same.
You're unable to speak a word about this, you can't look anyone in the eye, you're screaming on the inside, won't someone ask me why?!
Finally, someone might see what’s happening and they ask if you're okay? But you're speechless, powerless and afraid, please just go away.
You feel you're going crazy, life is too painful to bear, emotionally numb internally, feelings of despair.
Seasons pass so slowly, feels like eternity, broken inside, painful agony.
Mentally and physically depleted, yet you somehow make it through another day, you continue to block it out, in hopes it will all go away.
You're disgusted by what you've become, ***** and ashamed, empty on the inside, worthless, hateful and angry, consumed by self-blame.
The years pass by painfully slowly, it happens time and time again, until your prayers are finally answered and the healing journey begins.
You've come so far and begin making progress, then here come the intrusive memories, flashbacks and nightmares, nothing seems to make sense.
Each minute is a new struggle, you take things day by day, you go to bed each evening praying these memories fade away.
Eventually, seasons appear a little brighter and you begin to see some light, but cant help to think of other victims still going through this fight.
The things that have happened impacted deep within your soul, what's been taken from you, no one will never know.
They were people that you trusted, you've been so betrayed, how can you ever trust again when you'll never be the same.
How many predators are out there, warning signs may never show, millions of innocent victims, most we'll never know.
You will no longer be silenced, broken or ashamed, it's time to speak up and no longer take the blame!
Now you begin to open up, as hard as it might be, in hopes to restore your faith in this world and in humanity.
So many monsters lurking in the shadows, they are evil, they are cruel, seeking innocent victims, it can easily be you!
Parents ask your children, watch
for warning signs, start asking questions and listen for their cries.
Let's start making a change, one victim at a time, these pedophiles must be held accountable and punished for their crime.
They haunt me in my dreams, they haunt my mind, monsters all around me, monsters all the time.
