Metis Song


I was inspired to write this by the RPG Werewolf: The Apocalypse, which released a 20th anniversary edition last year-ish. If you aren’t familiar with the game this won’t make much sense to you, but it might resonate anyway. If not, just take my word for it that it’s pretty darn good.

Metis Song

you
ignore us
call us obscenities
deny our very existence
even though you made us
even though you are
the ones who
sinned against
Gaia

those
who should
accept us are
the ones who call
us corrupt; the ones who
would corrupt us are
the ones who
would accept
us

we
bear the
shame, the pain
the sorrow you earned
forced to live apart from
tribe, sept, kin, for
the crime of
having been
born

you
deny us
glory, honor, pride
even the ancestry that
is clearly written in the
form we never chose
our form at
birth and
death

far
more than
you will ever
understand we feel it
pure as we can never
be in your eyes
we feel anger,
we feel
Rage
