Dexter Mine - Poem by Julia Boon

Stranded on a planet not my own.
Left alone.
Alien place, alien race.
Must learn to blend and pretend,
I'm human.

I don't feel, and so I conceal
I must heed and feed the beast,

So, I follow the laws, and conceal my flaws.
I hide the slayer and heed the prayer
Of my Father.
Decrees passed down, like a kings crown

Born free but this family tree
Is cursed.
The worst is yet to come.
And soon this will all come undone.
