it creeps up on me and seeps into my mind
skewing my view and wreaking havoc with my soul
it burns my psychological skin
puts my gut in a iron clad grip
wrings my heart out like an old, decrepit wash rag
the lingering effects are such a struggle to shake off
i've tried to hold on to this fight in the most positive light
allow it to mold me into a better version of me
i lie here in turmoil
a twisted wreck of bitter thoughts
fists clenched tight
tears blaze a hot trail
dripping a steady stream into the puddle of unfairness and injustice...
when will the scales tip in our favor?
when will our life have have less pain, more joy?
when will the milestones of life not just be another day to endure?
dare to move
out of this pit
one day this fight will be done, the war behind, and the day will break into a glorious new dawn. only by God's grace shall i stagger forth from the rubble and decay to greet that day as one who is better not bitter.
