I deserve a Purple Heart for the wounds I’ve survived
a Medal of Valor for the battles I’ve fought
caught in a whirlwind of enormous proportion
blown off course just trying to seem normal

Try as I might to give up the fight
I was drawn toward the light for guidance
factoring in wins & losses from night terrors
sometimes the hunted – sometimes the hunter
in the backstreets of my troubled mind
