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.
