Poem: Oath

There exists a code to live by
A code to keep arrow straight and true
Honesty in thought and favour
Word and deed
Self-control in daily interactions
Modesty in thinking
Compassion to all
Giving benefit of doubt
Loyalty, honoring of vows
Commitment giving one hundred percent
Expecting no return
This is the path
I swear to take
This poem
Shall remind me
And all those who wish
To do the same

My name is Devin Hogg. I was born and raised in Carnarvon, Ontario, Canada. I moved to Guelph, Ontario, Canada in 2009 for university and lived here ever since. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
