​I can be a blessing, I can be a curse. 

To some I am an ally every hour of the day. 

I love to put a dent in everyone’s morale. 

I disguise your pain and make you feel strong. 

I am in your blood and everyone’s too, trying my best to creep into your thoughts. 

I meet my brothers in others around you and we laugh together as you poison each other.

As you read this, you may think yourself above me.

But it’s only a matter of time till we meet again!
