Empire of Self: Dead Serious (Poem)

Updated: May 10

A man in battle attire

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:


Tomasio, Empire.

Put something in higher regard,

Minimize else in disregard.

Disabled, never weak.

Tomasio, Empire:


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,

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.


Tomasio, Empire.

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.


Across humanity.

Philosocom, Empire.

It's not for myself,

Nothing else, I, to live.

Philosocom, Empire.

Let that sink in,

No other purpose, exists.
