Just Because Of His Appearance, He Was Disrespected - Poem by Adnana Saric
In a village at the edge of Earth,
There was a frightening birth.
All the people lived in fear,
For over a hundred years.
A beast with horns and claws came to be,
Living in a cave at the foot of a cliff in pure misery.
His eyes glowed red in the dark,
His fangs were bloody and sharp.
His growl disturbed the village from sleep,
His anger made people fearfully weep.
Villagers threw objects at him that were sharp and hard,
The beast stood with no guard.
The people feared him,
Even though he never came out,
The monster asked himself what was this disturbance about?
He was so poorly neglected,
Just because of his appearance, he was disrespected.
On a peaceful afternoon in mid May,
A little girl came down the monster's way.
She held a plate of fish in her hand,
While the villagers chased after her not being able to understand.
She walked right into the cave and into the beast's path,
She stood watching him overcome a surprise bath.
She moved closer, 'I appologize, but hungry you must be? '
He nodded his head and ate the fish happily.
He followed the girl out into the sun,
Where people ran screaming, 'He's the one! '
He was just lonely and needed some company,
He wasn't looking to scare anyone.
