Meditations of a Fallen Hero

Battling internal demons and warring with oneself

Wilting hopes and frayed nerves

An open book with ungainly smudges and dog-eared corners

A box that contains neither a red pill nor its blue counterpart

A war without weapons is the deadliest of them all.

Unseen wounds hardest to heal.

(Word Count: 48)
