    It's that monster
    Its that creature
    It's the thing that won't go away
    It's that something that even keeps
    lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my...
    at bay
    It's the jagged razor
    that tempts the suicidal to slice
    searching for the vein of freedom
    too frenzied to think twice
    It's that final taste swallowed
    of that last shot of gin
    as the alcohol mixes with the blood
    bubbling to a boil, bursting beneath the skin
    Could be the buttons pushed, when just
    the right words are put to use
    A slap can sting, but heals long before
    the pain of verbal abuse
    It's the proverbial straw
    that breaks the camel's back
    It's what you just know will send you over the edge
    cause of those coping skills you seem to lack
    We all have those monsters...
    those things that we just know
    if they truly come to pass, we just won't
    be able to deal with it....and so
    What do we do when
    that monster actually does appear?
    What we do is...fight, you hear?
    Fight
    with every fiber of strength within
    pulverizing what's feared
    Until that horrific, terrifying monster
    has virtually disappeared
    And if that monster should
    come back for round two
    we'll laugh in it's face and ponder
    hey, what's the worst it can do?
    Not only can we defeat that gruesome beast
    but any demon that dares to knock on our door
    Monsters still exist after October, after all,
    and for all the months that come before...

    Well, certainly they do come and go...
    It's how they're entertained, is the question! once fed, they stay for the next meal,
    But the way in which you stated...is a sure winner ...^5
    Great piece of art, thanks for sharing it with us.

    A constant battle Rich, but well worth the fight, appreciated much brotha.
    So wise, queent, and sometimes it's the same monster in a different form, reappearing until we learn not to feed it any more. Thank you sis.
    Glad you enjoyed nevar. I'm fine...and you? Thank you for responding so.

    Im sorry. You probably dont remember me, but after all these years I had to come back to this piece....its so inspirational, so filled with resolve....

    The title is just so funny...i quote it often to describe some people....its just a brilliant metaphore.

    Hoping all is well.
