I'm walking through the woods, it's pitch-black,
My mind filled with doubts.
Should I turn back?
Above me, towering trees,
Below me, crunching leaves.
I hear and see something lingering in the shadows
I know I'm not alone,
Looking left and right, all around,
I realise what's behind me,
A menacing clown!
Breathed a sigh of relief, cried tears of joy
That eerie clown is gone!
But what just grabbed me?
Suddenly I wake up,
Seeing I'm safe at home in bed!
It wasn't real!
But if it was all a dream,
Whose shadow is that right there?
