In this conflict declared by the few

All battles depend on You

So black blaze this white fire

Until ancient letters combine

Remember the sights that He showed you

Excavate through thoughts that compel you

Follow the wires of lightening running through this vine

For our voices still raging as flames in the shrine


When all shadows evoke

Vast darkness spreads out

The ocean now listens

Its waves diminish the doubt


And all those who are with me

I honor them all

They taught me my lessons

And groomed within me a role

Therefore, I am carving these letters

To become what they will be


In this cave within a cave

The world is my witness

The letters engraved

They slither like snakes

Weeping through dust and

then breathe out to space
