THE MONSTER

Jenny Bienemann and Carley Baer

 

All my life I’ve been afraid of a monster

See him peeking from behind a tree

Hear him whisper to me as I wander

This what he’d say to me

 

         Life is hard

         The world is scary

         People can be cruel

 

Then one day he came up right behind me

And I invited him in for tea

He said I’d only gotten half the story

This is what he tried to say to me

 

         Life is hard, don’t get numb

         The world is scary, but you belong

         People can be cruel, but you’ll find

         They’re far more often kind

 

Now he has a certain kind of sweetness

Like molasses in my tea

When the world gets overwhelming

On the bridge between awake and asleep

I hear him say

 

         Life is hard, don’t get numb

         The world is scary, but you belong

         People can be cruel, but you’ll find

         They’re far more often kind
