The Creature by Kimana McCallum

Inspired by Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Creator, I can see
the look of fear you have
as you dare to look at me.

Creator, I am alone
wondering if you will ever
accept me as your own.

Creator, I am weak
I am scared and I am tired
Will you ever be proud of me?

Monster, is what I am
you longed for perfection
couldn’t even make a man

Monster, is what you see
a demon and a bastard
you tremble at my feet

Monster, is what you made me
but the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree
no, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

A monster is what you want me to be
so a monster is what I shall be.
