  2. There are many types

    of monsters in this world:
    monsters who will not show
    themselves and who cause trouble,
    monsters who devour dreams,
    monsters who suck blood…
    and monsters who always tell lies.

    Lying monsters are a real nuisance;
    they are much more cunning
    than other monsters.
    They pose as humans
    even though they have no
    understanding of the human heart;
    they eat
    even though they’ve
    never experienced hunger;
    they study
    even though they have no
    interest in academics;
    they seek friendship even though
    they do not know how to love.

    If I were to encounter such monsters,

    I would likely be eaten by it…
    because in truth,
    I am that monster.
