They say that monsters don't exist, but this much isn't true.
For there's a monster in my head that can't be seen by you.
This monster can't be beaten with a sword or with a shield.
This monster never tires and it surely never yields.
This monster only lives to haunt the corners of my mind.
This monster says a thousand words, none of which are kind.
This monster takes on several forms: Fear, Depression and Shame.
It brings to light my darkest thoughts as if it were a game.
There is no peace for me with this monster in my head.
I'll never get the peace I crave till one of us is dead.
