[a poem, by Sha'Tara] ..."did I not say, Ye Are Gods?"... The gods would have laughed but dead before their time, their non-voices fed my eternal silence. O, to be God! (like God!) O, to have such Power! Indeed, Omniscient: nothing left to know! Omnipresent: no place left to go! Omnipotent: a cosmos of Self suitable but for destruction! Of such is Absolute Power. O, maddening burden, incomprehensible curse! Dying to know, to do, to be to end it all: Impossible! "For I, the Lord, do not change!" The gods, my children asking, begging, for relief from the curse of eternity: in love I killed them one by one I smothered them in mindless anger, with Pain I smote, destroyed, annihilated. Alone in Power, my only companion, my hell, my Self: my One: Eternity. Now you see ultimate horror: would Ye Be The New Gods?
