Throwback Friday- Babadook by Liyona

They called

you bad


scary to tell

and scary to


But you mean

the world to


dark and foreboding

standing in the corner

but you always

tell me

to be myself,

to be free.

they called you



changing your

hair and

changing your eyes

but never speaking lies

to me.

You always

tell me to be


and that the


will let me live


They called

you crooked


darkness your


in space and time

the dashing daughter of


but you

always gave

me hope

a light

in the world

for me

to cope.

They called.

They called.
