The Monster Hide, The Monsters Lie

And you'll believe every last one

The Monster Hide, The Monsters Lie

This was inspired by my deppression, and how it tends to feel.

The monsters, they hide in the shadows

And they whisper lies into your ear,

To be sure that only you can hear,

Part of your mind knows this

It tries to scream,

It tries to warn you,

But the monsters, they are louder,

They drown out the truth,

Making sure they’re the only ones heard.

The monsters, they hide under your bed,

So they can haunt your every dream,

And make you never want to sleep again,

They bring life to lies that they told you,

Shaping and molding them perfectly.

The monsters, they hide in your closet,

So they can remind you of their nightmares,

So they can bring forth every insecurity.

The monsters, they hide in your clothes

So you can never escape them,

No matter where you go,

They will be there, whispering and taunting.

The monsters they hide in your reflection,

Every flaw you see, they see,

And they’ll point out every single one,

All in soft little whispers,

Gently, as if they don’t want to hurt you.

The monsters,

They lie well,

They word everything so perfectly,

In the beginning,

You brushed them off,

You believed that they were liars,

But the thing is,

They were watching you for years,

Learning everything about you,

Their lies, hold truth

They took bits and pieces of it,

And they twisted them

Turning innocent gestures into more

Turning words of love into lies.

The monsters lie,

The monsters hide,

But you don’t notice that anymore

You don’t see the truth they twisted

You see the lie that they created.

You don't want to sleep,

Yet it’s all you can do

Because while no one was looking,

The war that you didn’t know you were fighting,

Was lost and the monsters won

The prize being you.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
