    born in the bowels of hell
    birthed in shit and blood
    bred for war
    fed on filth, venom and corruption
    fostered with hate
    a monster made for murder
    hand more apt to harm than love
    forsaken by god
    damned by man
    an outcast, a pariah, Ronin
    in shadows i walk, death my only companion
    pain my only lover
    no light to see by
    the pounding of my rage in my ears the only sound

  2. "awaken to your own self worth
    behold the light in your own heart"

    quelle difference from zee last poem you posted.

    (hope you're ok)

    P.S. Had to look it up...in Wikipedia

    A ronin (浪人, rōnin?) was a masterless samurai during the feudal period (1185–1868) of Japan. A samurai became masterless from the ruin or fall of his master, or after the loss of his master's favor or privilege. Since a ronin doesn't serve any lord, he is no longer a samurai. A samurai is a "servant", since the noun came from the verb "saburau" which is the Japanese for "to serve".

    The word ronin literally means "wave man" - one who is tossed about, as on the waves in the sea. The term originated in the Nara and Heian periods, when it originally referred to serfs who had fled or deserted their master's land. It is also a term used for samurai who had lost their masters in wars.
