the pain that haunted me for years
returned with a catastrophe, much stronger
and i was fragile
i neither learned the lesson
nor won over the war
yet i believe that somehow,
i’ll make it through
little did i know
that this time
there isn’t one problem,
one hardship
one insecurity
this time
i’m being attacked from all the directions
and i don’t know if it’ll make me stronger
or break the piece already broken before.
