A passing lyric

The monster in you

When I was growing up 

it hid in my story book 

it crept and crawled 

my fear installed

yet I couldn't help but look.

Now that I am older 

and through the years i've grown 

it didn't take a story book 

I realised on my own

that the monster that I feared 

was something far more real 

it's thoughts and fears 

ringing through my ears 

hearing words you would squeal.

when your eyes are cloudy 

you are not yourself 

the good, it goes

and life gets rowdy.

why can't you see 

past the glass 

and all the potential 

this beautiful life has.

I love you

i do 

but there is a monster

in you.

    I think most of us have a monster in us...some more than others. We must acknowledge then embrace!

      You’re right
      Maybe it’s harder to see our own monsters lurking in the shadows
