How does one define a monster
A beast who prowls for prey
Perhaps some disfigurement would aid our answer
Or better yet, some Thing that seeks to harm
Harm for harm sake is truly monstrous
But wonder, as is common
A little differently about our monsters
For what is more beastly, more ugly, more cruel
Than a good man who weeps when he can do no harm
That he lives as he only knows how
For the good of others and not himself
And all the kind words and gestures
And gratitude shown his way
Add weight to an already heavy heart
Sinking it closer to the depths
When love should give wings to soar
