I feel the struggle

a bit more,

I see nothing

but gray enveloping

this damaged warrior

as I’m standing upon

shaky ground;

I appear to be okay,

but inside this mind

I’m at war with memories

I just want to forget

as I can’t stop reliving them,

I want to wake up

from this unending nightmare;

although I’m feeling drained,

I know He will give me

the strength I need

to withstand this

battle forcing the earth

to swallow the blood shed

as I cling to His truth,

knowing full well

His love will carry me through.
