Who Am I by Anonymous

No longer a leader

No longer a medic

No longer an Infantry man 

No longer a soldier

No longer a breadwinner

No longer able to work

No longer able to shape my destiny

Will I be a better husband

Will I be a better father

Will I make my grandkid and great-grandkids proud

Will I drown in self pity

Will I control the past and shape my future

Will I get over being in a structured environment and take the lead once again

Will I be able to break out and live once more

Will I be able to be my sunshine

T.O.R.M.

What Do I Feel by Anonymous

I feel the pain of a worn out body

I feel the pain of memories that won't go away

I feel the want for the simple things

I feel the want for lost innocence

I feel the want to be understood

I feel the want to control my emotions

I feel the want to be a whole person

I feel the want to understand the voices

I feel the want to understand why I'm here
