I groggily open my eyes to the sudden noise,
Screams and cries for help are all I hear,
I cry to wake up ma sleeping next to me to ask her to make them go away,
Only to realise that those screams had come from her,
I look at her and papa, kneeling on the floor,
Surrounded by people,
But why are these people beating them up?
I wail louder to match ma and pa's screams,
Hoping it'll drive those demons away,
As if to say, "Go away!",
But mostly, cause that's all I can do,
Wait! The demons are saying something..
"People of God"? God?
Isn't that who ma, sings praises about every morning?
Isn't that who papa says, will always protect us?
Why is this god sending his people to hurt ma and pa?
Have they been bad?
Wait, why aren't ma and pa moving anymore?
Are they also sleeping like I was?
Maybe they are..that's why the "people of god" are leaving,
Ahh.. finally I can go back to sleep, but I need ma to cradle me to sleep,
I am crying out to her like I always do,
But why isn't she coming to me, like she always does?
Oh, why is it suddenly so hot in here?
What is that pretty orange thing that is spreading all around?
What is that misty thing coming from it?
Why is ma lying so still?
She isn't even moving no matter how much I shriek,
Oh.. maybe God is coming,
Maybe that's why she's laying so still,
Cause God will scold her, so she's pretending to sleep,
Don't worry ma,
When I meet him,
I will ask him why he punished you and pa,
I will ask him why didn't he protect us,
I will tell him how much you praised him everyday,
Don't worry ma,
I will sleep without you today,
I know I will meet you tomorrow,
