Monster

There is this monster living inside of me

Mocking me whenever I look in the mirror

From inside I hear it

Whispering to me

"Why bother putting make-up on?  It's not going to help."

"Why bother with life?  You're ugly, foolish, and stupid."

I wish I could silence this monster

Stop the stinging of it's remarks

Sometimes I think ending it all is the only way

To quiet the monster that lives within me
