He seems to be brave at first glance.
If only you knew.

When he goes to bed,
Something is always there,
And he can barely close his eyes.

A terrifying monster that takes over his mind,
Is slowly digging at him night by night.

He arrives at school and people see him.
He looks so tired and perplexed.

He seems to be avoiding sleep.
What could be bothering him so?

You might worry like I did so just ask his mother,
She'll tell you what she told me.

I think I'll lie off and leave him alone,
Especially now that I know.

Who would have guessed?
How could this have happened?

But remember,
if you're curious,
Just ask his mother,

And prepare for the worst.
