Inside Me #2

by a young woman, age 13

Inside me there is a monster.
When I feed him hate, he growls.
The growls usually end up with me
Hating myself.
Inside me there is a river.
It flows, I can feel it.
It’s calling me.
Inside me there is a heart.
I can’t wait till it stops beating. 


Dedicated to K. and my mom
