I declare war on [against] myself.

I am openly aligning with one side of the battlefield confronting myself with the unnatural strife from societal normalcy. This war has caused deceitful unconscious destruction of myself, both internal and external. I am currently in the process of cleansing self by affirming my credence so that I may purify my heart and return to my natural state.
