Where can a Monster go to fit in if they are afraid of the dark?
When they feel uncomfortable in tight places, so never sleep under the bed but on top with a nightlight instead?
Where can a Monster find friends to play in the sunshine and pick pretty flowers to wear in their hair?
When everyone they know throws rocks and breaks things instead.
It’s hard to fit in at home when you paint your room with rainbows and butterflies instead of lightning bolts and flames.
It’s hard to fit in when you like clothes nobody else is wearing.
Sometimes when you feel very odd and very alone, you stumble upon someone who feels just the same as you and they have more friends like you too!
You discover you wasted a lot of time trying to fit in, and you weren’t a Monster like you were told.
Just you, unique, wonderful, beautiful you!
