  • A long time ago I never knew myself. Then the memory
    Of shame birthed its gift.
    No more. The small one, the weak one, the frightened one.
    Running from beatings, deflating. I'm becoming more
    Than a man. More than you ever were. Driven and burning
    To rise beyond Jesus.

    I'm born again with snakes eyes
    Becoming Godsize

    I found my life was slipping through my hands. Perhaps
    Through death my life won't be so bad.
    I can see you, can fuck you, inside of you. Staring through
    Your eyes. Belittle your friends to serve me, to suck me,
    To realize my saving grasp. I of suicide. I the unlord.

    I'm born again with snakes eyes
