Blessing or curse?

I fear it most, yet it is my lifeline.

It is dangerous, yet it ties me to reality.

It is different, yet in some places it is not extraordinary.

It hides me and reveals me, it saves me and condemns me.

It is the thing I cherish, yet it is the thing I'd gladly trade away.

I immerse myself in it, it consumes me.

I bring it to life, it is with me always.

I cannot escape it, yet it is my escape.

It is my mind.
