Warrior Poetry: Taking Back What’s Mine

Updated: July 25, 2014



All of the horror

Burned into the backs of my eyelids

Reluctantly closing my eyes

I hear the cries

I see the loss of lives and…

Every time my fucking heart dies

This will not end

It is a part of me

It has imprisoned me

But I will break the chains of this misery

I can still feel the pain

But this pain will no longer define me

I set myself free

Free to enjoy my life

To love everything, even the simplest sights

And although this pain still bothers me

It just serves to prove to me, that I am in fact a human being

It will no longer destroy what is inside of me
