Aren’t Monsters

Monsters aren’t often made of tentacles & darkness.

Sometimes they sidle on up, wave a hand & smile at us

Monsters aren’t often found in bleak, foreboding places.

Sometimes they hide in plain sight with bright & shining faces.

Monsters aren’t always out for blood, feeding on fear or killing.

Some shake our hands & kiss our babies & seem ready able & willing.

Monsters aren’t often built out of talons, claws & giant maws.

Sometimes they work behind the scenes to hurt us with abominable laws.

Monsters aren’t always from nightmares or afraid of the day.

Often they do their worst by daylight, on TV & by offering to “show us the way”.

Monsters of the dark aren’t half as bad as the monsters up on the hill.

Daily they damage the fabric of reality by lying to get their fill.

Monsters are everywhere today just about everywhere you turn.

But we people are the ones to vanquish these creatures who our fires so easily burn.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
