it lurks as a demon

knowing it can kill but only smaller


only once it faced death

seen light in the washroom at midnight


it ran fast, triggering a scream

happy reaching a shade it felt it was not seen


its heart fragile, cannot run more

and slowly the shade started moving far


only option is to leave itself as is

knowledge passes, it chooses peace and life


calming the little girl looking at it

and she stops her father to kill the insect…


it is thrown back to the darknessĀ 

where there is no glory in his bravery, he lives
