, ,

when you become
a stench in the nostrils
eat the pain
make it your gospel
become the monster
never thought to be possible
alive in the fires
detrimental, responsible
practice your roar
your bellow colossal
your fists massive
iron will, robotical
pack sleeves with tricks
illusions optical
an unmatched foe
no victory possible
