PTSD by Jennifer Garcia

paperPTSD by Jennifer Garcia

Panic, taken over my life

Overwhelming, feelings of strife

Stress, consumed my mind

Trust, cannot find

 

Triggers, uncalming

Roadside bombings

Around, explosions, gunfire

Unsettled, dire

Mortar guns, my specialty

Acknowledgment, Sergeant that’s me

The soldier, the proud, the few

Impaired, askew

Change, my life anew

 

Sleepless, nightmares haunt

Taliban, taunt

Resentment, piety

Eating disorders, anxiety

Sensitive, my soul

Savages, they stole

 

Detached, I’ve become

Irritable, numb

Shocked, anger

Onset, feelings of danger

Return, structure and teams

Damaged, no more dreams

Envious, of the old me

Return, to who I used to be
