Heart racing

Head spinning

 

Realisation kicks in

My time might be over

 

Only 19 yet my time is done

No more family

No more friends

 

So little done

So much I want to do

 

I cant give in

I wont give in

I will fight once more

I will survive

 

I have a purpose

Look after my family

They need me

 

Eldest son

Big brother

 

Nothing will stop me

I will always fight on

 

Look death in the eye

It is not my time

 

I live another day

 

Question my life

Why am I here?

What is there here for me?

What do I look forward to?

Where am I going?

What am I doing?

 

Feel pathetic

Useless guy

Not a real man

No longer strong

 

Am I the strong person I was before?

I made it through

I am still here

I carry on the fight

Determined to survive

 

Family most important

Morethan my own feelings

Put them before myself

Always have done

Always will do

 

They are happy

That’s all that matters

I am here for them

And them alone

They are my purpose

They are my inspiration

 

They are why I am still here!!!!!
