I'm a Frankenstein

I'm a Frankenstein

A Poem by Justin Street

Teach me to breath
Teach me to make decisions
Tell me to go and leave
Tell me to hide incisions
Go out into the world
My son and only creation

Well I’m just a Frankenstein
Wind me up and watch me die
Tell you how I feel inside
Control group one, is my mind

Father you would leave me here
Suppressed and eaten up with fear
Why’d you even lie the lie
I’m just a test tube lost to find

Raised by evil reeve
Just like a damn slave
I try so hard to please
Mental stress, like raven rave
Just walking in the world
A being of dedication

Well I’m just a Frankenstein
Leave me here, and watch me cry
Watch me as I burn alive
Control group one failed this time

Master why’d you give me life
Is it cause you lost your wife
Master I have one last plea
Will you please bury me

Teach me to breath
Teach me to make decisions
Tell me to go and leave
Tell me to hide incisions
Go out into the world
My son and only creation
My Frankenstein, being of dedication

At first I thought that you were comparing yourself to Frankenstein, and then at the end, you mention that the creator's wife has died, and I think that it then becomes a poem about the story. Personally, I think the earlier stanzas worked better because they were more personal.

I read this as a song. I don't know if that's what you intended but it works. The rhythm in this is great and it gives you a sense of the desperation the subject feels. You express the many different emotions in this so well. Great job, keep writing!
