Empire of Self: Dead Serious (Poem)

With my intellect I demolished my fatigue.

It's Vanished.

It's Destroyed.

It's Obliterated.


Material: Steel.

Tomasio, Empire:

Be known by "everyone",

Reinforced through ill.

Across the globe.

Tomasio, Empire:

Agreed by plenty:

Her claim is false.


Endurance, or death.

Tomasio, Empire.

Put something in higher regard,

Minimize else in disregard.

Disabled, never weak.

Tomasio, Empire:


Won't be like the dark.

It's only deep anguish.

Tomasio, Empire.

Benefit is purpose.

Nothing else to live for.

You should learn from me,

My philosophies.

I live to contribute;

Let none be in my way.

I know I am mortal.

Tomasio, Empire.

But my legacy,

Justifies my relevancy.


Nothing else to live for,

Iron in the core.

Won't let it rust,

By stupidity or by lust.

To survive I must thrive.

Tomasio, Empire.

Food isn't enough,

I will reside in your minds.


No longer fear the hurt.

Tomasio, Empire.

Reject me all you want,

If I live, I come back.

Be grateful, or not.

Tomasio, Empire.

Won't die due to apnea,

Won't die, for naught.

Life is victory.

Tomasio, Empire.

As long as I'm alive,

Words of the dark, in defeat.

Darker than you think,

Traumatized, it's linked.

Will not let it leak,

Will surpass the sick.

Will not, be silenced.

Tomasio, Empire.

Those who don't want to hear,

Can block off, their ears.


Across humanity.

Philosocom, Empire.

It's not for myself,

It's for your behalf.

Nothing else, I, to live.

Philosocom, Empire.

Let that sink in,

No other purpose, exists.
