Illness ever present

From birth until my death

In decline, trying my resilience

My will to carry on

Clench my teeth until they crack

I’m like a rabid dog

Scraps of life, clenched in my jaw

You’ve got to kill me dead, or I’ll never give it up

Hobbled

Despite breaking my heel, I’ve managed to stay productive. Unfortunately, staying productive isn’t always profitable. I suppose I’m really in no different a position than I have been for the last several years, except I’m now physically broken as well. This would normally be the part where I attempt to direct folk to my patreon page, but I don’t really see the point. If people won’t support the charitable organization I run, I highly doubt anyone would want to help me personally. Hope everyone is having a substantially better week than I am. Bye for now.

Keen Motivator

Bruised and broken

Lost my focus

Home in on the pain

The only constant in my life

My enemy and friend

Ever present

Always has my back

One hand on my shoulder

Another on the haft

Twisting the blade

Agony

I’m hard to motivate
