I am god
in mortal form
I am unrelenting storm
and rejection to conform

I am fear in the
hearts of my enemies
you will give me
the respect I need
or I will take it

I am five million tons
on a pinpoint
I am focus

I am jackhammer
through concrete

I am a freight train
you will remove
yourself from my lane
or be crushed
beneath my feet

I am inevitable
and brakeless

I am icon
and titan
and the war cry
forged in the
furnace of my belly

I am the
flashing sword
and the
explosion that
leveled the building

I am animal
and grindstone
I am iron
pounded to steel

I am trial by fire

I am testosterone
and jet fuel

I am the earth-shattering
roar of the beast

I am white-knuckled
fists swinging
for the chin
I am the bloody grin

I am sharpened
canines and the
bite
I am fight

I am the
desperate engine
and the final
charge of the bull

I am the facer
of fears
and the gears
that had to be
removed
for the system to work
I am berzerk

I am the lidless eyes
fixed on the prize

I am time
and the climb
and the know
and the no
I am go
and go
and go

I am hero
