The Death of Peace

I have a Monster.

I suspect it rages in the heart of every man. I have taken mine and locked it deep, chained in the darkest of places in the hope that it does not tread on a spirit that once desired to be only gentle, caring and giving; loving. But as the years go by, and the scars mount, the monster is a'stirring, the chains have become loose in their age.

The weary heart is a poor guardian.

And thus the monster gathers the weak chains and slinks out, seeking the surface.

The guardian will love, love, love. The monster is a fury.

This monster wwants a cookie too >:-(

I think the monster probably dies off at about age 70+, or something? Just sort of fizzles out. I am not sure. I have not delved much into the minds of the elderly, but it seems like people are forever wrestling with it until they can make peace with it.

I think you should let go of your monster. Set it free and let it die on its own. Only then can you be free.



but who knows

maybe theres a monster in the other person too

I had a lot of respect for your story until I read this other nonsense...you made an honest confession and then allowed yourself to be buried in mundane banter...



Too bad, not many people can even acknowledge their inner darkness...those who can shouldn't be so afraid to let it out once in a while...

he he i love it when people have their silly heads on :)

Good advice! Any advice that means stocking up on cookies is the sort of advice that I'm likely to follow! :D

i promise there's another person out there who possesses a monster who will understand your monster better than you ever imagined. it DOES happen. often times it's not when we would like but eventually, with time and patience. in the mean time, stock up on cookies. ;-)
