Nice insight into the mind of the orc... my favorite line probably is: "I donít need some stupid story about how I came to be. I am." Of all the creatures Tolkien gave life to, I find orcs to be the most formidable and tragic precisely because of their origin. That a being as beautiful as an Elf can become a creature of darkness such as an orc is an unexptected twist in the "circle of life." Kudos to you for tackling this daunting exercise and for writing from the perspective of the "enemy."
