I have gathered together years of scribblings and thousands of thoughts.
This book is a compilation of poems and prose I have written over the course of eighteen years.
Why a monster?
Reading these old pages made me think this person who wrote them…had such a deformed soul it could only be a monster. It is not necessarily a pejorative term – it’s just there to highlight the suffering, the destruction, the monstrosity of perceiving the world through too much pain…
This is the manifest of me, becoming a human being. I had been a monster and I had hoped to become human.
The following pages are not for the faint-hearted.
These are the real struggles of a hurting being. I have cried and I have bled over these pages…even now, as I rewrite them.
There are no curtains and no closed doors.
Don’t expect to find pink roses and gentle wind breezes.
This is real life! Real life hurts…
Readers are advised.

This benign interpretation was proposed by Saint Augustine, who did not see the monster as inherently evil, but as part of the natural design of the world, a kind-of deliberate category error.”
