THIS A REBLOG from Words Of An Average White Male’s blog.  Please enjoy this brilliant piece of work and spend some time on David’s blog!  You’ll be glad that you did!

created by bouts

Overlooking a valley

of deluded dreams

Sweat

Beads along brow

Never ending battle

Fear born of deception

Exhaustion from defense

Defense from pain

I’m Left Handed

It’s never come up and why would it?  I’m left-handed.  It’s not as bad as it looks.  It’s just a sprain.  I’m a little embarrassed to tell you how I did it, so I won’t.  🙂

It hurts like hell.  I only got about 2 hours of sleep last night, so getting through the day is gonna be rough.  Typing is a challenge!  😬

TGIF my friends!  Have a good weekend and stay safe out there!
