Monster

By Vincent Ng


There is a monster inside me

Sometimes it is calm like the sea

Sometimes the waves are rough and brutal

I do all I can to steer my ship

Trying to smooth out rough waves

Keeping the passengers comfortable

It could take a minute, or a day, or a week to calm down

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep it to myself

Only allowing the monster to attack me


I’m not the only one with a monster

If you look closely, you’ll find it hidden away

In the depths of the ocean

And when it comes out

The battle begins

But if the monster wins

There are many consequences

Emotions, relationships and even lives can be spared

Controlling your monster is a skill

If we could all take some time

To control our monsters

Then the world would be much better
