"HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER"
“How do I catch a monster?”
I’m probably one of the few girls
who asks such a question.
I’ll definitely startle
those who look at me and wonder:
“Why do you wish to be a hunter?
You’re a girl.”
Oh, I’m aware of what I am,
even as the world
constantly loves being a reminder
including warning me of the danger
of trying to capture
all the monsters on earth.
“Because I’m sick of being scared,”
“even when the fight isn’t fair.
They may still hunt me down,
despite my hiding place,
even when I cover my face.
They don’t just crave
for me or somebody else.
They just want to feel more powerful
even beyond cruel.”
I refuse to be hunted.
They can go
as far as they wish to.
Still, I’ll keep asking
the same, damn question:
“Seriously, how do I catch them?”
These monsters will never stop
and I know
I can’t always get the protection
I’ve always been forced to obtain...
...even when they know
giving up my freedom is a pain.
