the War Inside

even in sunbeams

I’m often standing in the cold

shouldering this war inside my head

is getting pretty old

asking if I am ready for this truth

the face in the mirror looks deep inside

today can carry yesterday’s memories

freedom is smothered if I choose to hide

this long story keeps getting longer

holding moments even when I will not see the ending

breathe and write the script

tomorrow’s chapter is still pending
