~Me


When we were young and laid down our head, 

we were told not to fear or to feel any dread

from the fictitious monsters riddled under our bed,

or the closet that we feared would soon glow with red.

We were told not to fear, as it was all in our head,

but we still felt the feeling in our own homestead.

 

The older we grew, the more we knew

that the made up fiends were actually true,

but they do not reside where we all drew

our steady breaths as we drift into 

a deep, deep sleep wrapped in blankets of blue;

in truth, they dwell in every one of you.

"You don't really suppose, do you, that all your adventures and escapes were managed by mere luck, just for your sole benefit? You are a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I am very fond of you; but you are only quite a little fellow in a wide world."

Wow. Awesome. The end was just... wow.
