the pain mocked me:
Thomas R. Barton, JD

I may be just another human

But I hold in the center of my soul

A kernel of light, undimmed, eternal

Pain may cast a deep shadow on me

Torture me until I wish for death to release me

But that kernel will keep me alive

And drag me out of the darkness

Once, twice, a million times, every time

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
