Poem: 26th Birthday Poem

Another year
Has come and gone.
I see
How far I have to go.
Wrestling with loneliness
Dancing with the dark.
Searching for the right fit
In work
In community
In love.
I see
How far I have come.
Friends and family
Loving and supportive.
Knowledge of self
Growing ever deeper.
Capabilities and skills
Ever expanding.
Holy Spirit
Guiding and strengthening.
I give thanks
For this
And so much more.
Hope abounds
As 26 begins.

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.
