No Title, Yet - 66

Though I served my country with pride, To my counselor, I have lied. It’s hard to tell him how I feel. The fears I have are very real. It’s so hard for me to explain Why, now, I live life with disdain. After the things I’ve seen and done, I can’t imagine life with fun. I lose my temper faster, now. I can’t keep calm; I don’t know how. I used to be patient and kind. Anger and fear take over my mind. Anger wins when push comes to shove. I take it out on those I love. I’m afraid what people will think Once they know that I’m on the brink. So, with help and medication, I will truly find salvation. The path to become me again Starts with my family and friends. With help and love to pull me through, There’s nothing that I can’t do. I will live life again, someday To the fullest and in my own way.

Prayer moves mountains ~ the introspection itself is a great beginning
