first you must believe in yourself

the next step is the darkness
this life is but school
to learn and master your mind
for in the darkness
there is only you
and time is meaningless
when you take new flesh
you might come out 
in the fires of creation
of the ice of finality
the darkness is the essence of god
if you believe it's hell it is
if you believe it's heaven it is
in the darkness you are god
the darkness is the essence of god
and creation is at your finger tip
it has been called the forever dream
