What keeps me awake

I wonder if I'll sleep tonight.

I wonder if my mother will knock down my door at five in the morning and begin to scream at me.

I wonder if she'll snap and choke me.

I wonder what insult she'll spit out next.

I wonder if I'll wake up to doors slamming.

I wonder if my mother will turn on the animals.

I wonder if I'm next.

So, I doubt I'll be getting much sleep.
