Homebound Battlefear

Hearts won minds turned chemical burned,

Hero’s march home, war and dreams,

Constant reward, images burned, wounds inflicted,

Mind confounded and infected by nightmares,

Can’t sleep, media a constant reminder,

War a reality nuclear vision blur,

Fear gripping heart, reality tilting heart,

Hearts and minds, minds and hearts,

Winning hearts and minds, lost, lost,

Hope adrift on seas of hopelessness.
