New Age of Pride

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

my cries
reveal themselves from hollow darkness
they are not consumed by emptiness
they are filled with the wildest energy
that i have ever experienced.

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

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.
