This poem is dedicated to all my comrades that had served in the military, specially in combat zones and are dealing with the struggles of invisible wounds throughout their daily life. I know exactly how you feel. This is for you, buddy.

When a warrior cries, he has been hurt

and sometimes the pain is so overwhelming

that it can lead that warrior to a quick death.

When a warrior cries, he is in pain

but since he's a warrior his pride won't let him

show you his emotions, cuz that's how he was trained.

When a warrior cries, he's full of emotions 

the nightmares, the flashbacks, the voices

take over and the rest...well, it's NOT fun so...

When a warrior cries and you see those tears

that means you're so special to that warrior

for him to show you his greatest weakness...FEAR.

When a warrior cries...
