Everyday Battle

At first I thought that I was the only one

It felt as if a part of me were gone

And I did not know why

So at nights all I did was cry


What was the cause?

After so long why now?

Everything was going good, well so I thought it was


And then it all came back

Those faded memories

I just didn’t keep track

It has been centuries


I had to tell somebody

It was so horrific

Why would he do such a thing to me?

It was traumatizing to be specific


But now I have grown to realize that I can’t let it stop me

I need to move on

I must forgive although it hurts me

I just wish it were all gone


And I know I’m not alone

Good or bad, we all have our own
