The Monsters Inside

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

The Monsters Inside 

 

When I was little, I was scared 

Of the monsters that dared 

To hide in my closet or under the bed


Each night, before I went to sleep

I’d slowly creep 

Checking to be sure, 

The closet was clear 

And no monsters had made it under the bed


That’s because when I was little, 

No one told me - 

You will not find the monsters 

In your closet, 

You will not find the monsters, 

Under the bed, 


The monsters are in your head 


You can’t escape. 

Each night, 

They come alive 

Sometimes making you want to die 


Now I wish, 

I was only scared 

Of the monsters that dared 

To hide in my closet or under the bed


Instead, 

They found a home in my head. 







-H.M. Jackson
