By M. Jay Mansfield

I made my way to the void
and I threw myself upon it
I was consumed by the emptiness
I built worlds around myself

I made my way in the void
I stood proud among my peers
Yet I was jaded by their faithfulness
and I built gods in my image

I crawled through the void
enveloped by its infestations
I destroyed the plagues
and they immortalized me

everything is in the void
all that you could ever need
things that drain your very being
I finally understand how they feed

I understand everything in the void
I understand what I am becoming
I understand what I need to do
I understand where I need to go

You can have The All
Finally I am one with the nothing
