The Battle Within

The battle within is deeper, the conflict is stronger.
The voices are louder,
The struggle is harder-
The tears are more sorrow.
The battle within-everything taunts you.
The laughter of children, how sweet and innocent they are.
The battle within, it reminds you of how you once used to be.
It haunts you,
It watches your every step.
The battle within,
You linger and hold on to every memory of your"use to be."
The crying is never-ending, the pain is never-ending.
The battle within, you try so hard to get away.
Nothing seems to work:
"I want to be free, I want to be free."
The battle within,"Let me out, let me out."
But it won't let go.
It drags you around, it tortures you in every way.
The battle within, it knows your every move.
The battle within-
Until you are a no longer"you"
The battle within,
But now a"was".
