– mightier –

My will to write the following words is mightier than my hunger for diversion from progression: I possess a history of imbalance. I keep distraction hidden under my pillow or in my back pocket for protection. I stick my nose into my phone instead of my books. I play pretend to disarm potential foes. I […]

There is no need to […]
