Evil walks among us, Little One.
Those of us who are alive must learn to conquer it.
We are survivors.
What we dream no one may ever know.
What we scream into our pillows at night, no one who walks this earth may hear.
But we are survivors.
Evil walks among us but so does love, goodness, and humility.
There are many people who want to protect you.
Thankfully, they walk among us, too.
