Can’t Seem to Help Myself

A free verse poem of empowering myself.

On this dangerous battlefield,

Some of my soldiers become casualties.


Rushing to aid my wounded troops,

But I am also injured behind enemy lines.


Offering assistance to anyone in distress,

All while I wrap my cuts with gauze.


Helping others is an easy task,

Yet empowering myself is a hard mission.


Healing my scars is a rough assignment,

But it’s a duty that will be fulfilled with time.
