Who I Am

I am an artist. I am a tortured soul.
I am a painter in search of a canvas.
My dreams deferred. My solace is sleep.
I’ve been weakened by beatings and have become fearful from my scars.
From battles fought I’ve lost the fighting spirit.
I write these entries to find it.
My goal is to learn to Dream and Hope and Rise above my despair, my past, my affliction, and most of all my enemy.
I welcome you, reader, to my true tales.
Let them not burden you but reveal to you the anguish, unfairness, and pain I have endured. All for the purpose that I will regain the power of myself, to stop the loop of loss, and to someday win.
