Imagination Required

Maybe the claws and teeth will warn you

Only seeing the glow in the eyes

Not realizing that they mean no harm

Still knowing the difference in their charm

Taking what is needed and nothing more

Even as their face changes away from normal

Reacting only to the danger for themselves

 

How often do we forget

Useless though mankind has been painted as

Most stories were created by man

And the true monster isn’t full of teeth or venom

No, the greatest monster is the man

 

Animals are not monsters, mythical creatures aren’t monster, humans though… Humans are the ones that get a choice in how they act, they are the ones that, at times, choose to be monsters.

Must be the imaginations within us.
