The Monster Read Count : 23

I remember being young

The rumor about the monsters 

Under the bed

In the closet

Down in the cellar

Or in the attic


I remember being young

All I had to do to make them stop

Was cover up my feet

And don’t stick them over the edge


I remember being young

And the sky was so blue

The grass was so green

And the world was beautiful


I remember being young

The only thing bad was bedtime

Not being able to get the toy I wanted

It rained when I was supposed to play outside


Then we grew up


I grew up and the truth finally showed


The monsters aren’t hiding around me

They’re hiding in me


I grew up and blankets aren’t shields

Covering up now makes you sweat

It makes you shake more

It makes it so you can’t breathe


I grew up and the colors dimmed

Bedtime is all I want

Toys are only a thing of a dream 

Because money rules life


I grew up and I can’t even remember

The happy little girl I was most of the time


I’ve grown up to hate myself


To hurt myself


And be the only monster there really is 


I’m not sure where I went wrong

But somewhere along the lines

The monster contained me

The monster became me
