Summer horrors sliced through again
Hanging on to my battles I have won

News flashes have me running for cover
As evil men mutliplied their scarring acts

I will fight on making each scar into a star
Releasing black blood is my lifesaving tool

Bloody screams from within are terrorizing
Graphic acts blaze like campfire flames of youth

I must remind myself that many innocent suffer
Needing united forces that are breaking chains

My fists are high for never surrendering
Confronting overwhelming Visions of HELL

This time I will escape from naked tormenters
Proudly with my tears without shame...

Phewwww. I felt my stress levels rise reading this. You certainly know how to write emotive poetry. There's not a lot I can say, the poem say's it all. -- Don't stop there --
