Monsters in My Head


I know that you can’t see them but they are truly there

They talk to you each morning and fill you with despair

They say that you’re not good enough to even be on this earth

They say you should have left it even before your birth

They say that you are ugly or too fat or thin

They tell you that this world is not worth living in

They say that you have no friend in life wbo understands your pain

They tell you that you’re miserable and that you’re the only one to blame

But you can’t give up the fight you must put your armor on

You must fight with all your might to prove the monsters wrong

I know it won’t be easy for the monsters don’t fight fair

But you must reach out to people, believe me there are those who truly care

They may be a teacher, a mother, a father, a sibling or a friend

Believe me there are other people who have also let the monsters in

I know that it is hard to talk about the monsters in your head

It’s so much easier for people to understand a heart attack or broken arm or leg

But don’t you ever feel guilty, embarrassed or ashamed of that

We sometimes all need help to send the monsters back

So please reach out for help and know you’re not alone

I, too, have had the monsters and with help I’ve sent the monsters home
