MY NEMESIS By Ibn Yahya

Written by Editor

In reality
You have limited my ability
You disarrayed my fidelity
You contaminated me with impurity
You said it is a trait of humanity
You are caged in this cavity
All you could see are illusions in this world of vanity

My ego, my psyche, my mind
You are Fond of lustful desires that chained you to this world of misapprehension
You have been deceived by illusion
Despite all the illustration
Albeit, you still believe in delusion
that can lead to destruction

I used to be pure with a glowing heart from the Genesis
As proven by the scripture through its exegesis
Now am obscured in the light, even my voice is in thesis

I am on the quest to fight you, untill I conquer, I will not rest

Because,
I want to live after death
I want to fly without wings
I want to see without eyes

My soul! my soul! my soul!
You are me, I am you
I love you, i love myself
I love myself and I love you
Albeit, you are my nemesis
