gnosis

My rage has shriveled to sadness,

my anger wilted to sickness.

Hatred dies down to only

dim disbelief.

Pride cools to humility,

and brashness melts away to patience.

My arrogance thaws into

rivulets of compassion.

My Truth ceases to live,

and no longer needs defended,

so fear not all ye fellow

worshipers of lesser gods.
