She will climb from the abyss.

She is her own greatest fear.

She must battle herself.

    In her being, she felt the chaos of the world. It never quit, this cacophony of the multitudes attacked her. Into a sound chamber she curled. Finally, she had solitude.


  2. Its horrible to battle ourselves.
