Monsters

What is a monster? It's powerful and ugly. We know it's there but have never seen it. It's hiding under the bed. It guards the cave of treasure. It lurks in the depths, it attacks from the heavens.
It's whatever mask your fear wears.
The monster can be more frightening than the reality, but it can also be more palatable. The important thing is that it disguises your fear either from yourself or from others.
And when the mask slips, oops, all of your deepest fears are visible. All of your vulnerabilities.
So which would you rather have? A monster or your soul laid bare?
Yeah, me too. The monster is our friend.
