Can you see the Devil before the Devil sees you?

Gods I used to know

As a child, I thought my soul the son of two fathers: a Devil who wasn't so bad and God who wasn't... But where the Devil gave us hedonism, God offered hope and it was living, thrilling, fun and false or so Satan told me. And so false hope and hedonism were the gods I used to know. But they are not confined to the past, for they're in my DNA and so like Sisyphus, I roll rocks of hope uphill only to see them roll down again.
