Walking Tall

fb27ea169726c1d359454ca6b99a710aI stand walking tall.

Knowing what I have faced,

And the wars I have fought.

You might not see the scars,

But there are engraved deep within me.

They itch,

Reminding me that I am a survivor, A warrior.

And sometimes,

I do hear the battle cries.

Fearing to close my eyes,

For within my mind is my reality.

An inferno like Dante’s.

Monsters dashing towards me,

As mental battles rage within me.

In fear, I stand strong

And only God can help me.

You do not see these raging battles within my mind and heart,

But I stand walking tall.
