I used to believe that monsters where something horrible. Beings with horrid appearances, but I was wrong.
Monsters lived inside me. They are part of me, living inside me. I didn’t accept it at first, I couldn’t believe that I was a monster. I cried knowing how evil I was. How cruel I can be. I felt so bad. I felt regret. I asked why a monster like me even existed. How was I given life when I am so cruel.
I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror. All I see was a horrid face. A face of an angel with a demon inside her. I shattered the mirror into millions of pieces. I can never look at myself. Ever again. I can never be free because… I’m alive. With my decisions and temptations, I can never get rid of my demons. I can only control them.
I told myself to run. Run away Lara, run. Run as fast as you can. But I couldn’t escape them. My demons are like shadows. Turning up wherever I went. I cried, not knowing what to do. So this is what I will do.
I will change my demons and turn that part of me into something new. I will break free of these chains and fly away.
I shall fly and never die. I shall become a soul.
