I Know The Enemy

"A man can't be too careful in the choice of his enemies."
~ Oscar Wilde


I know the enemy
the enemy is inside me
he's my best friend
together we feel alone 
and experience it as ultimate truth
he and I feel the despair 
that fuels our rage
the depression 
that claws from underneath the floor of hope
the latent potential 
to transform blinding white hot pain 
into infinite power
the suffering of everything that should not exist
the nearly insatiable need 
to destroy everything in my path
to redeem 
what is unique 
original
and free inside the human soul
all that which belongs 
to the pure individual 
inside each of us
this is what I work for 
the thing I regard as greater than ourselves
because it is ourselves
