D.M. Anderson is a schizoaffective stay at home dad to two wonderful autistic kids. He spends his nights writing poetry, journaling, and corresponding with penpals.
This poem, Shoulder Devil, was written during Intensive Outpatient Therapy during the art therapy program. At the time, Anderson was at probably one of the lowest points in his life, having just survived a suicide attempt. But through poetry, he is slowly fighting his way back to the light.
