A Monster Under My Bed
Sometimes, as I sit in class, surrounded by other kids just like me, I close my eyes…letting my thoughts take me to a better a place.
A place where I can be myself and not pretend to be somebody I’m not. A place free of judgments. I like it here…I feel safe.
Suddenly, I’m startled out of my trance by the bell. My peers hurry out the door.
Slowly I drag myself out of my seat, grabbing my backpack, thinking… “I can do this…I can make it through another day.”
