vaulting the waters of the vast oceans of pain.
i embraced the diamond paths
and elevated the self.
i wander, solemn
unrestrained by carnal bonds
channeling the essence of the parallel i
through mind-searing channels of fire
towards thresholds to be
as the thousand faces of perfection
gaze upon me
discipline does convey transcendence,
and with it, the splendor of the unseen
i stand, in defiance of death
upon this path.
