Mental Battle

I enjoy my loneliness

Most times it brings me happiness

Covers up all the emptiness

I meditate and erase bad memories

But sometimes it creeps up

That feeling that I hate

And immediately there is a mental debate

Trying to open evil gates

Trying to change my fate

Just when I was doing alright

It silently waits for the night

To try to attack

To remind me of my slack

I start fighting for bliss

I have learned how to dismiss it

It fights my positive energy

because it cannot coexist

I will admit sometimes I resist

But it is strong, and it persists

It is a crucial battle within

It comes close in assisting me to sin

But no matter the cuts and bruises…I always win

My name is Glory Castillo. I have been writing poetry since a very young age. Being an only child, I needed to find a way to process pain alone. I believe poetry is a form of art, expression and therapy. It helps me cope and it also makes me happy when other people can relate to it. Being in the health care field, gives me a better understanding of how important it is to let your mind relax and your thoughts flow. Poetry is my therapy.
