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!!!!!
