Into the Woods

Into the woods and down the path
where darkness falls from shadows cast.
Into the woods with tangled trees
and roots reach up to scrape your knees.

Into the woods, a moonlit night.
Beware the ones that fill you with fright.
Into the woods where monsters rave
and ravens watch with hungered gaze.

Into the woods. Run faster now,
Or end up like the slaughtered cow.
Into the woods, bravery is fleeting.
Hear how fast your heart is beating.

Into the woods. Your tail they chase.
Do everything to speed your pace.
Into the woods, a glimmer of hope.
The tree-line’s there to help you cope.

Into the woods. This time you live,
but nightmares are what it gives.
Into the woods and down the path.
Be careful else you face its wrath.
