These waves of emotion out of control as I sit by the freeway with no control
All alone yet thousands who see me
The voices are saying there here to get me
I fight and I struggle to control what I feel but I can see, feel, and taste it as if it were real
Battles can only be fought all alone
But the waves of my struggle are crashing down
I'm feeling as if the war will not be won I'm a man no more who can even perform
Who could want me after these waves take hold and drag me down to depths unknown
I struggle to believe even those I love and destroy myself more pushing away in my head but it's all that I want and can not have
Maybe one day these waves will subside and I'll be able to have that life

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
