Monsters of violent world

Do you believe in the monster under your bed?

What about the monster in your head?

Do you believe in the monster living next door?

What if that monster came knocking at your door?

And it hides behind a friendly smile

Contemplating all the while

Do you think that you could even begin

To recognize what lies within?

Tell me what do you do

When the monsters come after you?

Tell me where do you hide

From the monster buried deep inside?

While the whole world falls from grace

You try to make it a better place

Every day is another day

To try to change the world in your own way

But in a world of dark and light

Who's to say what's wrong and right?

When even mocking birds can cast a shadow

How can you really know?

And you better be prepared to fight

For everything you think is right

But how do you begin

To fight what dwells within?

I want to watch you cry

I don't even have a reason why

It's a deep and burning need

I want to watch you bleed

Do you believe in the monster under your bed?

What about the monster in your head?

Do you think that you could see

The monster that lies in me?

Your very own monster

All humans have it in them, be it buried so deep you don't even know it exists or the controlling force of your life. The thing we all need to remember is to not let the monsters take over our lives but to fight them. It is not our monsters that make us who and what we are, it is our choices and our actions.

      Wow. This is wickedly cool. I imagined it as song lyrics in my head. Like a hard rock or maybe grunge type song. Really cool though.
