My World: “I Am What I Am”


Ah yes another poem to feast your eyes upon. This one however is not about me or my life, not really anyway. It’s about a myth, a legend, and my views on what this creature actually is. Over the past decades this aspect of folk lore has taken on many different traits. Some have stuck with it, while others are still up for debate among fans. In the end this is how I see them, at their core, and probably always will. Enjoy!

I am what I am

I cannot change

I do not want to

I have always been

I shall always be

I am a killer

Not a lover

I have no conscience

Do not ask for mercy

I am not remorseful

Do not expect me to repent

I am your evil

I am your devil

I cannot be saved

I am to be feared

Not adored

I will hunt you

You are my prey

I am a monster

I am a Vampire

About Chyina

Well this is the part of websites/blogs that I don’t like, I have to admit. How is one suppose to describe oneself without coming across as egotistical or bragging? *sighs* I guess the best thing is to be truthful and simply short with what you have to say. Let the rest of the pages and entries speak for themselves. :) First, I like to think of myself as creative. I love art, music, writing, and a bunch of other things. Though we all are guilty of buying the massed produced, China imports, at the local ‘buy it all here’ stores. In the end I would much rather have a handcrafted item. There is simply something more unique about some that actually took thought and effort to get the end result.

  1. Indeed. Do you know the legend about the woman who healed the snake? She came upon the injured (poisonous) snake, took it back to her abode and cared for it until it was healed. When she set it free, it turned and bit her. As she was dying, she asked the snake, “I saved your life! Why have you killed me?” The snake replies, “That’s what I am.” There is a similar legend about a frog (or turtle) helping a scorpion cross a river.

    It makes an interesting contrast to the one about the mouse removing the thorn from the lion’s paw. Any sensible person knows what really happened to that mouse.

    If you’ve ever seen Stone’s Natural Born Killers, the concept of monsters being what they are, no more, no less, is central to the movie’s theme. That snake legend is mentioned, and there is a direct reference to scorpions.

    Vampires are just symbols of the real monsters: us.

    • You know I haven’t heard that one before, but there are probably several variations to that theme. I’ve heard a dozen or so myself.

      I’m going to have to watch Natural Born Killers. It’s another one that’s been on my list but somehow I haven’t gotten around to yet. O_o
