Progeny of the beast
I cannot control my hunger
So I must feast, as I'm released from my leash
By the master of Disguise
I am to destroy and take lives.

I absorb the blood, I embrace the hate
For I am nothing to love
I am nothing, as I infiltrate
The minds of the dead, and lost
Those who want power at any cost.

I am nothing but a pawn in the Devil's game
I am nothing but a mere disfigured creature
Who he never bothered to name.
To show my uselessness
I am constantly beaten
Beaten by the words, and the weapons
Of fire and coal
I am lying on the ground, I have no soul.

And it continues for I am the seed
Of this undesirable, perpetual breed.

The author's comments:
I wrote this about myself. I guess I was in the mind frame of what I think I was. Just a creature. I received the inspiration for the Title from the book that later became a film, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I thought of the creature in that book also, as I wrote this. About how it feels to be so hideous and unwanted.
