Moments there are when you feel all alone
Feelings and frustration are all overgrown
Stuck in a period that others can't see
Held captive by memories called PTSD.
The flashes of yesterday become like today
Traumas from the past simply won't go away
Trying to move forward but stuck in reverse
Symptoms are rising: they keep getting worse.
Others dismiss you: you're losing your mind
They tell you to forget it and leave it behind
Frazzled and frustrated they question you why
You keep on going backward and don't even try.
PTSD is truly something terrible to see
But becoming its victim is hard as can be
FOr though you are trying to let it all go
Trauma works against you : its departure is slow
