They built me in the shadows
And bled my sallow, rigid
Blood until I was a waif
And bent on hell's revenge.

At the toll of torn benevolence
Rose my mother and my
Forefathers; yet none of
Them could ever stand with me.

They construct my heart from
Beating tissue of living flesh,
Ripped from the shreds and
Tatters of rotting, sour souls.

And so, here I lie, a product
Of a broken past and the
Malicious intent of men who
Were better strangled by fate.

Let no one find me, for I can
Do this on my wretched own.
Decrepit and disillusioned; no
One dares release my fetid bonds.

Yet I can hear the machinist's
Machines working for the men
Who bulk and exhaust their
Inhuman, sanguinary steam.

They incite my rage as I lie
On the cusp of sleepless sleep,
A savant of all the idiots that
Cannot stand their ground.

I can sense them, their crooked
Thoughts and smiles, bound
To bondage of kings and serfs—
They sow an unrepentant land.

Hear me, now; I will end this
Sin to flawed perfection.
I will live to lead the rising
And die to watch the fall.

Here I wait—I lay in wait
In my insidious cocoon.
I stew in the noble blood of
My mothers and my forefathers—

The bastard child—
I will live to lead the rising
The savant—
And die to watch the fall


Well, this is all I have time for right now.

Inspiring! I have plans for a fanfiction featuring Mewtwo as the protagonist, and I think this will help me write him better! Awesome job!

Oh my god, this felt like something I would have done a poetry analysis on in AP Lit! D: You are simply AMAZING!!!

absolutely amazing writing!!

I can't believe how much emotion you got out of this... makes me so happy to be a Pokemon fan when intelligent people bring out the adult issues hidden with Pokemon's childish exterior.

On a side note, got white 2, and by far it's the best in the series. It's that great. and Hugh is an amazing rival, just saying :)

anyway, awesome work!!

I read this aloud to myself...

That sounded something I would hear someone mutter to themselves in a movie as they are about to go psycho and get revenge... :iconmegustaplz:
