The Battle Of PTSD

by Bobby   Jan 28, 2018

You live in this dark hole
At times you climb out
To feel the sunshine upon you
Maybe it will last longer but you doubt

You dream on the past battles
Waking to a cold sweat.
Afraid to let someone sleep beside you
A nightmare with them, you will regret

You wonder why you survived
When others did not
You wonder what if
Yet you know how hard you fought

Still you stay in the battle
Many times in your head
Wondering if it would of been better
If you too were counted among the dead

You can not quit
Fighting forever for your life
Till the day comes
You are called into the afterlife.
