Poem: Pain

An old enemy
A constant companion
A great weakness
A greater strength
Through it I find meaning
Because of it
I know myself
I need it
It is my bane
And my humanity
It is my teacher
And my tormentor
It is my secret that I long to share
It is my darkness I keep hidden
It affects my body and my mind
It is
My pain

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.
