Favorite Quote:
God and the devil are raging inside me.

All my inspiration
Comes from my lack of medication
If not for my ball of nerves
I would never have any words
To put down as a rhythmic flow
And enable me to keep my mind in tow
I can’t say for sure
But writing has become my cure
It’s the essence that boils my blood
And keeps me fighting in the world’s mud
But when the hostilities cease
Will I still be able to keep my lease
That being the little talent
Becoming very gallant
In my hand
To the growing book on my nightstand?

It's sort of embarrassing but my counselor would like me to try medication to help with anxiety, but with medication will I still be the person I am and the writer I want to be?
