Rough

I like it rough, all of it. My life, my sex, my relationships, my truth, my thoughts, my job, everything. My life is rough and I wouldn't have it any other way. Fighting through, figuring out, putting order to disorder, surviving. These are accomplishments that people with easy lives never get to have. Perspective, compassion, patience and perseverance. These are important things that a rough life has taught me. So thank you, God, fates or just plain chance for this life of mine. It's wonderfully tattered and painfully scared but it's real; and I own it, and I love it every day.
