A Tribute to those who heroically battle the ravaging effects of an Angry Dragon and its attempts to cause total annihilation to the spirit.

What is An Angry Dragon?

Some of the greatest heroes of our time will remain unknown to the majority, but still, they are fully known by God. These survivors show us the enduring and awe-inspiring substance from that which miracles are made. They are the warriors who battle the daily devastation and relentless pain of a seething, Angry Dragon- which is that of Depression, Anxiety, and/or PTSD.

Hero- Mariah Carey

Warrior


Oh, Warrior!

You have roamed

many unknown lands,

enduring struggles wide

and unfathomably deep;


A mystery, the many

wanderings of your

tiresome sojourn,

and the lost,

lonely nights,

in which you so weep.


Painful Pestilence


Painful pestilence

and nightmarish darkness,

the angry dragon

breathes upon

your every burdened step;


Its unpredictable torment

of angst and doom,

relentlessly

attempts

to render your spirit

into irreversible debt.


Waging War


I have seen,

and I have heard,

your anguished pleas,

begging for

needed relief;


But mercilessly,

the angry dragon

continues to wage its war,

in hopes to only

further deepen

your somber grief.


My Hero


But alas,

I know my hero!

Unique and valiant,

you inevitably rise up

to the occasion!


You, a noble,

and strong-hearted

opponent,

frequently carry out

your own

resuscitation!


A Survivor


Resourceful,

and courageous,

you are a survivor,

and take firm grip

of your foundation!


Thus, yeilding not

to the angry dragon,

you hijack its mission,

for now,

and halt its devastating

manifestation!

~

      Hari,

      Yes, the fire-breathing dragon, and the struggle... Everyday, unspoken heroes are its survivors.

      It’s very kind of you to stop by, my friend :-)
