The Wonder Years

By Kent A Fahnel

Subdue my memories

Denial comforts me

Cruelty unfounded

Amazing audacity

Trust tainted

Numbness is a safety net

Time does not heal all wounds

Everyday was a roulette wheel of pain

Dodging hatred always

Strength drains

As does the willingness to continue

Relentless onslaught

Bitter taste of reality

Trust shattered

Just to survive the day is a victory

Coasting through life

Hoping not to be noticed

Inconspicuous

A wraith
