‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé

The night was silent
Until I heard a sound,
So I ran into the kitchen
To grab a knife
And do the ready-to-defend position.

I waited for a monster with claws
Until the door bell rang
And I sighed.

After all,
Monsters are just products of imagination.

Before I reached the door,
I stopped
And thought to myself,
What if monsters are real?
What if it is an alien knocking at the door?
What if a zombie attacks from behind?
What if the products of my imagination are real?
What if...?

“What is taking you so long
To open this door?”

As I sighed again,
I opened the door
To reveal my mother,
Arms crossed and face terrifyingly angry.

Smiling like an idiot,
I said,
“I thought you are a monster.”

“Do I look like one?”
She stepped into the house,
Yelling at my weird imagination.

But at least I learned one thing:
“Do not be afraid of the unseen."

The author's comments:
I got the idea of this in a part of Max Ehrmann's poem Desiderata where he told us not to be distressed by dark imaginings.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend
