sometimes I hate myself

bouts of depression

fits of anger

when patience runs out

when apathy stands in the way of caring

moments of truth


sometimes I love myself

hours spent with a loved one

when I’m able to help

when overcoming an obstacle

when patience is plentiful

moments of truth


sometimes I don’t care

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
