Minotaur

Minotaur

A Poem by SwagMaster
"

A short poem about the myth, the Minotaur.

"
I didn't want to be evil; I was born this way.
The mistake of my parents,
And yet I must pay.
I'm not to blame for my freakish growth,
Neither man nor bull, and yet I am both.
Forced to live in that cursed maze,
Eating innocence that sends me in a craze.
I'm a monster; nobody dare look at me,
Shunned by my mother, and cursed by the sea.
Then the one came, with his ball of string,
Wooing the princess and tricking the king.
Freeing my prey, and bringing his sword,
Only thought in his head was of his reward.
The blade entered me, and shone with my blood,
I felt the sting, and fell in the mud.
My awful life may finally cease;
I thank my murderer for my
Blessed release.

I tried to see the whole thing from the Minotaur's point of view. Feel free to review!

I absolutely loved this! Just a great poem about being stuck in a rut. Being tied or trapped in something so badly, that wanting it to end consumes you. Great personification! Keep up the great work!

"Eating innocence that sends me in a craze" is my favorite line. beautiful and depressing at the same time. sometimes we all feel a bit monstrous!

You are very good with rhymes! I like this one very much! And I love this twist of the minotaur being just like everybody else. A job well done!
