The Monsters of the World

My eyes refuse to see the night 
simply as a Cimmerian shade of day 
Not because I am afraid of it...

As a child, you fear going into even 
a dimly lit room in your own home 
because of the monsters in your 
closet or under your bed

As I grew older, I ceased to believe 
they lived in such places in my room, 
but in the shadows of alleyways or parks

I no longer fear the dark nor the 
monsters in my room, but 
the monsters which hide in the world outside
