There lives a monster within me,
He doesn’t know that I can see,
He is ugly and beautiful,
He is foolish and wise,
He is a question and an answer,
He is dark and light,
Sometimes he leaves,
The other times he stays,
He is a truth and a lie,
He is loud and quiet,
He is a fact and fiction,
He is a loser and a winner,
Sometimes he is all the same,
The other times so different,
He is difficult and easy,
He is high and low,
He is safe and dangerous,
He is young and old,
Sometimes he stays calm,
The other times he is excited,
He is emotional and serious,
He is a part and whole,
He is depression and ecstasy,
He is bitter and sweet,
Sometimes he comes first,
Other times the last,
He is hungry for attention,
He yearns to be left alone,
He likes to play hide and seek,
He desires to be loved,
He cannot sleep in the night,
He cannot wake up at eight,
He is hungover a silly lover,
He is a pro at letting go,
He is an encyclopedia with all the answers,
He is an exam which cannot be passed,
He cries when he is happy,
He laughs at his own misery,
He is insecure and an egomaniac,
He is a thought,
He is a choice,
Sometimes he is called soul,
The other times inner-voice,
He is our reflection,
He is you and me.

About globalunison

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima
