20. After he had conquered

  After he had conquered earth,
He discovered
  That he had conquered nothing.

  After he had conquered Heaven,
He discovered
  That he had conquered something.

  After he had conquered himself,
He discovered
  That he had conquered not only much,
   But everything,
  Even the monstrous things that he thought
  He would never be able to conquer.
