Welcome to my first blog post, a short poem that sets the scene for the direction of the blog.

How can I sleep when so torn deep within           

With each blessing a curse seems to blacken each win

Is it that ignorance is where hides my bliss

Should I seek my denial, betray truth with a kiss

Or should I let fire burn deep in my soul

Let the flames light desire, let it stir in the coals

Should my mind walk a straight path shared by truth’s lonely sound

Will my courage be turned by illusions abound

And so as I peer through the darkness of night

Will I once again sleep, holding tight to truth’s light.
