A lifetime ago,
Mephistopheles offered me self knowledge.
I did not take it –
I was too consumed by battles
with the powers that were,
intent on making them realize
the folly of their false, misguided Godly beliefs.
I wasted my time with all that,
and all the years in between.
Now Mephistopheles is knocking on my door again.
I will not turn him down this time.
I am you, Mephistopheles,
you are me, and I and you
and me and we
are children of gods and wise men free.
