The monsters were never
under my bed.
Because the monsters
were inside my head.

I fear no monsters,
for no monsters I see.
Because all this time
the monster has been me.

I have been trying to write this poem for a long time but I couldn't find the words.  Thank you for doing what I couldn't :)

and sometimes you also exaggerate :hug: you have never been a monster, simply an obstacle to your personal happiness.

I like the poem, but I don't quite support the concept. Even though nowadays humanity is a monster, but not everyone :)

Lol very nice. Inspired by Eminem and Rhianna's "The Monster" perhaps?


"Im friends with the monster that's under my bed,
get along with the voices inside of my head....."

You certainly have the ability make and stick to your point without rambling on to make it appear more "artistic"'. By keeping it short and simple, the point also gets across more efficiently.

Being a kind of monster myself :-p I am more inclided to think that by a monster you are referring to your ways of thinking rather than appearance. I.e., why fear something out there when things to be afraid most may be found inside your head...? 

Whether those are things that have prevented you achieving something you'd have liked or just thoughts you'd rather not have had yourself thinking, I am not sure. But, by the sound of it, you know now who or what the monster is to deal with it accordingly.
