The Truth Behind Our Monsters

I want to run away from my problems,

I want to hide from my fears,

I want to be left alone by society's expectations,

I want my anxiety to stop taking over my thoughts.

I would rather have my monsters live under my bed than inside my head.

But I can’t run, or hide, or ignore, or control my nightmares… I have to wake up.

I have to understand my monsters,

I have to chase my dreams,

I have to face my fears,

I have to gently let go of the weight I can no longer hold, before I drop it.
