Reflections: The Real Monsters

The Real MonstersWhen I was little, I feared there were monsters under my bed and in my closet at night. I imagined they were hideous creatures who wanted to scare or do harm to me as I slumbered peacefully at night.

Where this notion came from, I am not exactly sure. It might have stemmed from my parents joking how the Bogeyman would visit me if I didn’t behave, my brother watching scary movies like The Wolf Man and Dracula around me, or my Christian roots and learning about Satan (also called the Devil).
