The dragon I fight hunts
Me daily, crushing my
Body with agony and spirit
With defeat and frustration.
The tools I am given are feeble
And weak, never sturdy enough
To do damage and encourages
Daily I fight, never surrender,
But rest I need but never
Given at the time it is needed.
I curse the dragon and despise the
Body that has become so
Embattled. Life is lived but
Not truly enjoyed.
The curse I face, the dragon has
Infected me with leaves me only
With a body that feels broken and
A mind so mired in overly
Freedom I seek, dreaming
Of days without the dragon, but
These are dreams I should reject
For time has not allowed for freedom yet.
Dragon, oh dragon,
Leave me be.
Haunt me not for eternity for
One day, hope will allow me to be
