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
