There are shadows

Down the hall

In the corner

On the walls


Words are shallow

I hear voices

Some are deep

Most are small


They direct me

And inform me

To commit heinous acts


I keep my head down

I don't look back


There is a light somewhere


Causing the shadows


I won't give up

I won't give in

Each step descended

Is a battle won
