Poem: The Darkness

The darkness seeks
My life to take
To swallow whole
My precious soul
To break my will
Through constant pain
To make me dark
Fore’er more
I draw the line
I stand firm and tall
With God’s help
To the light I hold dear
Though darkness seduces
Ne’er to be fully banished
I make the choice
To stay true to light
No matter the price

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.
