Medusa Tale

Look. I am the monster.

Look. I am madness.

Look. I am truth.

Look.

I am the unreason which is immutably joined with reason. I am the hidden face of the bright-eyed one; lift Her helmet, see the mass of writhing snakes. I am the monster who cannot be conquered or vanquished; you may no more be rid of me than you can separate the back of a coin from its front.

You do not wish to see, of course. You do not want to know me. Why should you? I am the monster, and monsters are frightening. So you deny me, and turn to the light. But the more you look away, and you always look away, the stronger I am made. And so I am strong, very strong. And I may not be ignored.

Lean in closely and I will tell you a secret: it is not my ugliness that petrifies, but your fear of my ugliness. For I am truth, and that is beyond both ugliness and beauty.

It is true, I will deeply disturb the order of your life, and that is a blessing. For what I destroy is merely the frightful peace that comes when you will not look.

Accustom your eyes to the dark, and look.
