Poem: My Purpose

Listen to me
My child, dear
You are meant to trod
The unbeaten path
I intend thee, dear
To be forged through rain and fire
Though you will suffer much
Denied the normal comforts
Your life shall serve my purpose
Your destiny full of pain
Balanced by joy
Love of friends and kin
Though you will question your path
Cry out in fear and despair
I will guide you, child
Your heart will be your strength
Lead you to the light
Though all the forces of darkness
Tempt you astray
You shall always be my servant
Let it be so

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.
