A Sonnet by an ''Other''

Like Frankenstein, I, too, am loathed to death; I walk this earth devoid of friend and hearth, devoid of joy from the time of my birth and from the first draw of my infant's breath. An outcast and a pariah among the friended, I exist without the mirth and bliss of those born of more ample worth, esteem, and prize,—O would that I belong! Still, I am loved of my dear family and most scarce friends, my books, and by my God, and my most oft-read, soothing Poetry. These things I treasure, honor, and so laud with gratitude and thanks abundantly, and so am glad like worms in blesséd sod.
