Who are those beings you find in the shadows?
What are those terrors of your thresholds, your gatekeepers?
Who are the monsters under your bed?
What are the beasts hidden in your closets?
Who are those creatures you fear to find in the darkness?
What names do you call them by?
What powers do you possess them with?
When was the last time you sought them, named them, challenged them, embraced them?
When was the last time you looked closely and recognized that they are a part of you?
When did you last test them to see if they were truly what you imagined?
How long will you hide your face and be conquered without even drawing your sword?
How long has it been since you read “Where the Wild Things Are”
