I’m still here
I know that when you look for me it seems I’ve disappeared
I know the ghost of me, I see her in the mirror.
I wish I could open a window to let you see inside
I wish I could call out to you and tell you please
Don’t let go
I’m still in here I promise and I’ll be back
It’s just right now I’m hiding from a brutal attack
See my body is a battlefield
And right now it’s under siege
I’m hiding in the trenches waiting for the troops to leave
And when this war is over, it’ll be safe to come out and play
Just please don’t forget about me because I’m fighting every day.
*ok so I did not inherit my Fathers talent for poetry, but this needed to come out exactly as it is*
