Poem: Battleground

You tore my innocence

Away from me

You took my health

And future too

You took my body

Left it scarred

You killed my closest

Cried tears of grief

You stole my love

And threw back hate

You captured my children

Then twisted the truth

You took my trust

Lied and cheated

You grabbed my home

And made me poor

You hit me hard

Left me bleeding

You gave me a battle

And still I’m fighting
