The monsterous me, sees me
smells me, tastes me, feels me, touches me and only me
The monsterous me knows me and only me

The monsterous me feels pain as through only pain it can reaffirm its own existance
The monsterous me feels pleasure as through only pleasure it can reaffirm its own existance
The monsterous me creates life of birth ascendency and degredation
as only through birth ascendency and degredation can this monsterous me
perceive itself as real

The monsterous me creates enemy and friend
as only through enemy and friend of thought and foe and friend met
can such thing as me be so affirmed

The monsterous me causes life of the supreme
ruler of all
the monsterous me causes life of begger vagrant
subject to all
Through such lifes tale me is clearly found true

The monsterous me causes creation of all
solid liquid and gas
As such differentiation such can only be found
in eye of me me in all

The monsterous me see the whole for the small
The monsterous me creates gods of various shape and form
all with one common degree all is known
all shape and form of such beings
reflections of the me this in monsterous form

The monsterous me creates suicide
as suicide it can only be known
is greates affirmation of this me
only what is truly real you see
can be killed by act or deed

the monsterous me you see
its greatest fear
nonexistance it cannot be allowed for a moment
to be found in the real
as real it most solely seeks to feel

Psalm sutra doctrin whatever be called
and kept at hand
things of sort and semblence
a me envisioning other
as only through other may this me be defined
as only aversion is through the reaffirmation of me be found most clearly
a good must be provided as such a bad
both as equal to prove this thing of me

that is not me you see
I am as this or that
not this monsterous me
this must always be found

A threat to me this cannot be allowed

a cross a burning at a stake
a enemy of the state
it all may found to be
me it is that only is threatened be

This monsterous me it can only see
me in all not all in me
as me in all its greatest desire
and lofty proclaim
is found not ever that
all is really me

Nice to talk to you again Gordo



We may perhaps consider ourselves as the gods do and talk in song....at least until the flowers wilt :smile:
