Der Gro▀mann aka Slender man. This is a short poem about him and how he abducts kids.
100 theme Challenge Hold my Hand

Edit (9/4/2012)- Wow this is one of my most popular piece.
Anyway. Der Gro▀mann isn't his only name. So please don't say that his name is something else. It annoys me.
Edit (9/6/2012)- So many likes and faves. Wish I can thank you all but there is way to many people to thank. But anyways If you put a spam in the comments you shall be fed to SLENDY!!
Edit (9/8/2012)- I edited it. So it is no longer Der Gro▀mann but Slenderman. I didn't want to get anymore comments about how his name isn't Der Gro▀mann or anything else.
Edit (10-2-2012)- I don't care if you use my work as long as you credit me :)

Preview picture goes to YouthCat
Slender Man goes to German Mythology :)

It's definately creepy, but at the same time, very comforting. It's one of those things where it paints Slenderman in an hauntingly heroic light from the perspective of a young child. I usually do not like poems, but I have an obsession with Slenderman, so yeah.

Slenderman takes people's lifes before a painful death in German Mythology (Yes he is a evil figure) but in the game he takes little kids. This poem shows both of them. I know its more nicer then what he is framed to be. It is so funny seeing other's reaction to this poem. You'res so far is one of the best I have seen. :w00t:

Yep. Goes by many names to not just Der Gro▀mann. I just remember that... so my other comments of how he is from germany are somewhat right XD.

Warum (why) der Gro▀mann, u mean the Slender Man. In germany we call him the Black Man, der schwarze Mann, there are songs of him from our childhood that everyone knows. it's not different to bogeyman. But it's just a legend.
Your poet make him nice but he is a simbol for bad people who want to hurt little girls and boys.

I like ur work but think of urself, the life is what u make out of it.
the death will end it.
But no one can end ur work that only u can do on this earth.

I lived in Germany but I have never heard of him being called der schwarze Mann but Der Gro▀mann. Yes I know he symbolizes evil but I have heard that and from my past that he was taker of death, he took people from a painful death. Not to hurt little kids.

Really, has no one told u the song from "Wer hat angst vorm Schwarzen Mann" = "Who is afraid of the Black Man"
we have played it in sports in eary jears.
Hmm another theory is that on different places in germany the name is different spoken.
It could help, in which part of germany u have staied?

I think u combine the figure of the Death with Der Gro▀mann, than it isn't the same person we mean.

I even searched for Der Gro▀mann, the only association i have found was a pic called "der Ritter"
but i have nothing other found.
Just english pages not even one german side.

Slender man in his current rendition, is credited to the somthing awful forums. The original idea, creditied to the awesomness of german mythology, is Der Ritter.

Hrmm....Look up Der Gro▀mann, then come back.


He is something based of Der Gro▀mann. So I just connected the dots.

I like that you presented this subject matter in a much different tone than it's usually shown in! It really gives you a different perspective on how the victims see Slender Man.

Great job!
