Walking Wounded  by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 10/11/01

I know that I have tried ---
To not let the world not pass me by.

But alas I am tired, I am weak.
 Have lost all hope;
I have prepared my soul.

This world has made me sad;
I think that I have gone mad.
The things I do...
The things I say.

My heart aches in pain
My soul has lost its will to win

I know there is laughter after pain
These things just are not the same.

I know there is sunshine after rain
But I can only hope that the floods
of time will drown my pain.

I am, I know, Walking Wounded
