My Personal Platoon


United States
35° 10' 40.0584" N, 120° 28' 54.642" W

I fear that my assent is not from individual strength, not from personal power
I fear I needed assistance to climb up from beneath
Was it me, able to withstand my demon alone?
Did I only need to believe to start the transformation?
-The placebo effect
How could I get so lost?
To be incapable of finding joy within hurt, light within darkness
I, unable to fight myself without backup
I fear that if I send my soldiers home I will again lose
So dependent on my personal platoon I become
One day, I aspire to need no troops but my own heart and mind
But for now you may call me
