Monsters in the Dark

Scary stories, monsters, creeps, darkness all around
In entertainment, we set aside an occasion
to scare ourselves into devastation
but the real monsters do not live in horror movies
and darkness isn't just for scary stories
Monsters can live everyday in daylight
and darkness can linger and lurk in sunlight
So why do we engage in creepy tales, fantasies and stories?
Why do we dive into horror in all it's glory?
Don't we live in a world full of real horror?
Aren't we surrounded by monsters that turn us into mourners?
Maybe a lot of us resonate with things that are creepy and dark
maybe that's all we've known, maybe that's how we leave our mark.
It can be hard to relate to sunshine and rainbows
when rain, storms, hurt, pain and blow after blow is all we know
So we come down to live in fantasy land
Trying to make up a fun time and not live life so bland
Be it making us sad, happy or frightened
Bringing on emotions or becoming enlightened
I wish life was only flowers, love and joy
living in a bright and technicolor-ed world
but alas here we are
living with bruises and scars
on the surface and in our heart
so let's live life to it's fullest
and try our hardest to forget and ignore
the real life monsters that live in the dark.
