Spring and summer
winter’s drag
I’ll see them all
now that I’m back
my fight, my plight
all that I’ve done
it can’t be seen
by anyone
my tears, my hope
my days in wait
for something good
kinder than fate
this kind of pain
it knows no bounds
yet leaves no trace
nor makes a sound
it stalls the heart
blots out the sun
so hard to stop
once it’s begun
but past the hurt
there lies a truth
none else can teach
not joy or youth
life is a die
a twist of fate
but you must eat
what’s on your plate

The author's comments:

I just graduated from rehab/military school and was struggling with all the pain of being back in the real world. I felt like all the work I had done added up to nothing and no one saw my fight with life. I was feeling very sad and had to get this on paper.
