Are they Real or are they Fake?
Can I see them in trees
Or maybe I can spot one in a lake
Do they work with you and me
Can they cook, can they clean?
Questions that used to fill my younger mind
I did find, that monsters do exist
But don't look under your bed
You see they're smarter than this.
Some crawl into your head
Make you have really bad nightmares
Whisper things into your brain
Ideas you would never come up with.
Some monsters hide in the shadows
Waiting for you to be down
So they can turn your whole life around
Some wait until its really dark
So when they strike, they hit their mark.
Not often enough, You will find
Some monsters that are really kind
Don't be fooled by their outward appearance
Or their sometimes sudden disappearance
Some are scared of other monsters
that's why they sometimes hide from us
But let's not lose Focus
Others roam the streets like you and me
Some can be seen flying high in the sky
Working in banks and fixing machines
Blending into society, Looking exactly like you and me
Now isn't that scary?
Never mind, though, my gibberish and rhymes
I am sure you will see for yourself in time
That monsters are as real as day and night
No matter where you go
I am sure you can find
the monster that resides
