Mastery

The Past is written
with strident fingers
reaching for
the Stars of Heaven

And in every era
there stands one Man
who weighs the evidence
of betrayal and truth
on scales of Magick
that bleed slivers of destiny
in the glittery dark

This Initiate knows
Life is little more
than a charade played
with human masks,
actors on a stage
that God never intended

But He is determined
to make His Mark
with hands of holy fire,
while avoiding the accolades
our masses convince themselves
they need:

A Master.
