A House Of Monsters

A House of Monsters

Whenever you look in a closet there is always a scary monster

He just waits in there for you to see him

He feeds on the darkness of terror.

Whenever you look under your bed there is always a scary monster

He waits for you to look for something and see him in darkness

He needs the face to fuel him

Whenever you go into a dark forest there is always a scary monster

He waits behind a tree to see your face

They need to see you to survive

Whenever you go into a dark unknown room there is always a scary monster

He is hidden ready to surprise you when the lights go on

He feeds on the darkness of terror

But are all these monsters in life meaning to hurt you

Every monster in every closet or under every bed?

All these monster prepare you for the real world.

The monsters always build you up

Making it so a real monster in your life

Won’t scare you

And will help you get over it

Maybe they are all just nice sprites?
