I can feel this thing inside me, this thing that twists and burns and consumes the uttermost parts of me. I am alight with it, burning hot and brilliant. It is there in the blood of my veins, there behind my eyes, there wherever I go. Always there. Always burning.
So let the darkness come. Let the oceans rise. Let the voices scream and rage. I am unstoppable. I am untouchable. I am invincible!
And inside me the lion roars.
