Thirteen Years’ Worth

It’s been thirteen years

since the demon

entered my mind.

The demon,



But I am not my demon.



I worry about tomorrow,

even though I’ve been told to

worry about today.

But I now know,

my demons are not as strong

as my resilience.

as my fight.

as my survival.


That bitter, sharp wind

may make wounds on me

with its twisted blade;


it does not

rip me inside.


And the seasons shift,

as the ocean tides


when the moon beckons closer;

the light seduces me

into bearing

the winter current

for the reward of a ray of warmth

And for that,

it is worth it.
