War inside my mind
Spinning as I try to keep it still.
Checking my emotions
Numbing how I feel

War around me
Nothing feels easy for me
Life fighting each way I look
Failing constantly

War inside my home
Each target it chooses skillfully
We’re losing each battle
Trying not to lose hope

War inside myself
Wanting to feel free
Tied down at the mouth
Watching my words as I speak

War inside my heart
Pulling inside its strings
Telling me I am close to what I want
But I must choose carefully.

War inside my world
Where is the peace?
Not a quiet sound around
Moving constantly.

Why is it so hard? I ask myself daily. Tears collecting in a jar. They shed silently.
