It starts with pain and ends with death or fame
The lucky ones slip by, anonymous,
Safe with their shadows embraced—no shame
In the balance between here and there. Hush.
Stay quiet and don’t deny the changes
The forest brought out of the doubts that drove
You inward on the journey too soon. Ages
Passed inside while the monsters talked and wove
Their words round and round until you forgot
The truth, the lies, the hopes, the dreams that died
Like a phoenix rising, flames and fire shot
Higher still, until all the tears had dried
My monsters have always lived in my mind
For me they will even be wise and kind
