New Age of Pride

I have found pride in what i am,
in my pain i found pleasure.

I have realised that my screams and cries
that reveal themselves from hollow seeming darkness
aren’t at all consumed by the emptiness
but filled with the wildest and most untameable energy
i have ever experienced.

I have died and have been reborn
with every new tear into my soul 
and that has given me
new eyes to look with upon this world.

I have discovered places in my mind i never deemed possible,
I have drowned in pleasures i never thought desirable.

Yes my demons haunt me
But what they haunt me with
is both a curse and a blessing

for i suffer and suffocate
but nevertheless
find myself
in new worlds, new words and new strengths.
