I never asked to be different. I didn't choose to be this way: some wretched fairytale creature, shunned and hated by many. I didn't kill your brother. That was the hunter. He was trying to shoot me. Blame him for your problems. Leave me out of it. I'm a very peaceful creature actually. I live as a human during the day. I live among you and I eat what you eat. Why would I want blood? Why would I kill a person?
  At night, I run free in the forests. I roam across the land, howling, in agony. For I long to be loved. Why do you hate me so? Why do you despise me? I never did anything to you. I never hated you. I never hurt you.
  Why can't you just let me be? All I want is true freedom! All I want is to be myself without having to make excuses! What did I ever do to deserve this? I didn't choose to be this way! I didn't choose to live my life in secret for fear that you might come after me with torches and pitchforks! I'm not a monster, you know. I'm really not that different from you. Why can't you see that?
the plight of a werewolf...

...gosh, i wish i was a real were... not just a literary one...

I think this proverb/story/whatchamacallit that I read up on a few months back fits the lycanthrope persona almost perfectly.
Here, tell me what you think

In every person, there are two beasts, each capable of devouring the other.

One is evil through and through. He is made of revenge, sorrow, regret, rage, envy, greed, arrogance, stupidity, superiority, guilt, lies, ego, false pride, inferiority, self-doubt, suspicion, and resentment.

The other is everything kind. He is made of peace, blissful tranquility, wisdom, love, joy, hope, humility, compassion, benevolence, generosity, truth, faith, and empathy.

They circle one another inside our hearts and fight one another at all times.

Day and night. There is no let up, not even during slumber.

Be careful which beast you feed, for he will follow you home and live with you until you either make a bed for it to stay, or find the temerity to drive it out.

One beast representing darkness, hatred, and madness.

One representing light, love, and peace.

Whichever you feed, may destroy your life or better it.

this is how I always imagined werewolves. hasn`t anyone else noticed that most ( if not all ) werewolf movies make the werewolf a vicious monster?

I honestloy think people fear us werewolf is because we remind them of their animalistic side and they want nothing to do with that...

Also, humans know all the best ways to cook meat. Why the hell would we eat them? Just take the ham they just cooked... better a thief than a murderer.

I'm not hating or disbelieving but if you guys were serious about being werewolves you wouldn't be posting on the internet about it

Many people see us as the creaturs of hell. we are nothing like that. we care for nature and spirits of life and we are NOT savege beasts.

I'm not a werewolf... but a werecat. I've not fully matured, so I don't transform yet...yet...
I'm not harmful, I wouldn't really hurt anyone, I might scratch or bite you, I might explode in your face... but all I want to do is go run into the woods and scamper up a tree and watch the birds, in peace...
I've never admitted this before. I thank you for expressing feelings in this poem, and to all other wereanimals out there, let's not use our abilities for wrong purposefully...
