Afflicted

The internal battles – agitation, pain, fear – plague us.

It’s a thrashing within.
Dwelling in our emotions.
Acting out in our physical state.
Challenging our mental well-being.

Longing for a release or respite from discomfort.

It can sometimes happen, someday.
And if it does, it comes in the form of a favorable resolution.
Finally, there can be some ease.

Effort gets us to the other side of affliction.

And it makes us who we are.
