It bites, often and in varying degrees
but it does bite.

You’re left feeling wounded
and it stings.

You work on getting better
and the ache dulls.

You’re on the precipice of reparation
but then teeth sink into you again.

It bites, over and over
but you always bounce back
though it takes some time.

It bites
and you may not be able to stop it
but you can repair your wounds
you can take care of yourself
you can continue on.

Its bite is no match for you.
