The Void isn’t black; it’s devoid of color, you see

This vacuum derides a soul terrified

No sensory vanity—impossible to define

Like describing a new sense or a dimension

Beyond our three

.

This is no realm of fear; at least it shouldn’t ever be

But the projections of his mind left him far behind

And imagine a fantasy intent to terrify

He casts reality aside, in himself confides

Escape's futility

.

In vacuum are birthed his gods and ravenous demons

Every monster who claims to have swallowed the sun

But truth beholds none, not a single no one

Could dare challenge death’s hollow reality;

Your sun is weak

.

He fears no spirits, no deranged mortal minds

No delusions of tormenting infinitude’s confine

He’ll live by a morality derived from within

Hell-bound with Hell found based not on arbitrary sin

To live free
