my sisters demons

She lives in a house that is crumbling down. 
Every brick that comes loose, 
she plasters right back in place.
On the outside,
it looks like a beautiful place to live.
Picture perfect,like a magazine cover.
But on the inside, 
it looks like hells backyard.
The ghosts and demons she tries to keep locked away.
She puts another brick in the cracks to keep them in,
not realizing there are too many cracks
and not enough bricks or plaster to fill. 
She tries so hard,
 to keep up the appearance of a lovely home,
and to most she has them all  fooled.
But to a select few,
 who have seen the demons within,
we know the truth she tries to hide :
Oh little sister !
No matter how many bricks you put back in place.,
no matter how many cracks you fill, 
One day,
those ghosts and demons will escape 
then what will you do ?
