Poem: Battle Wounds

I wake.
My body aches
My movements are slow.
I wash.
My body comes awake
My mind feels refreshed
My soul begins to stir.
I dress.
I feel the weight
Of all my pain
All my failures
All that cannot be undone.
I go
Through the day
Trying to bury my pain
Trying to hide
My battle wounds.
