You look in their eyes

And you see the pain and the fear

And you know right away

That the monster was here

So what do you say

I mean what do you do

When you finally realize

the monster is YOU

Very well written. The title is short and misleading. I thought for a moment it might be a love poem. Of course, I clicked on the link to open your poem, read the first two sentences and couldn't have been more wrong. In so few words you make a powerful statement about human suffering and the role one plays in identifying the cause of said suffering. Appropriate use of all caps on the last word. An eloquent ad hominem.

So little words, but a big powerful message. I enjoyed reading that...
