Happy Martin Luther King Day! Today, I decided to share this short but sweet poem that I wrote a few years ago, that I hope you all will enjoy!

I got a lot of hurt in me but I try to ignore it, I am weary but I am strong and move forward, onward, I go. It’s the only thing I really know, my friend and my foe. I thought I have been through this before, I guess I am not familiar enough, life gets rough, but onward I go I take every blow and feel it in my soul, deeper I go to who knows where but at least I am going there, at least I am aware. I stare into space trying to make sense of this strange taste in my mouth, trying to understand why everything went south. But it was meant to be, this is my tainted destiny. This red elixir keeps me company, like a soothing tea. I was vision impaired but I am slowly starting to see that what will be, will be and because of this, I rest in this new found clarity.
