Suffering and War

Everybody’s suffering,
Everybody’s fighting a war,
A war of words,
A war of worlds,
A fight with the other,
Or a battle with themselves.
Everybody’s suffering.

A war within is the worst,
There is no army, no weapons
Maybe the weapon of past, or an army of memories
Everything is vague…

Nobody knows what’s it like to have this storm inside,
Eats you up and spit you right out
Bare and broken, Into this world of despair
Where nobody really cares,
As everybody’s is suffering,
Fighting a war of their own

A war where there is no casualties but wounds.
Wounds so deep, Bloodied and torn
No one to heal, no one to hold
Hold you tight and save from all
All that’s inside, All that’s outside.
All that’s above, All that’s below
All that makes you cry so low.

Try to understand each other that’s what they say,
Give some space and a benefit of doubt,
As everybody’s suffering,
Fighting a war of their own….

    True. And nicely done.
    War within one’s self is the toughest. And since everyone is fighting something of their own, everything really seems vague. And impossible. And useless. And seriously, when you’ve ‘no one to heal or hold’ that gives the toughest wound eva.
    P.S. I love your blog’s new header.

      Thanks about the header, It's still not permanent, might change the look. Can't decide there are so many options actually ! lol

    So true, people are involved in their own battles that sometimes they become insensitive to others needs and feelings.You have captured those emotions beautifully.

    Talk about yourself, don´t say everybody is suffering, I´m happy as a hippo look! 🙂 🙂 🙂 ……..very nice poem little Zee, deep and very true. Although hopefully for those people with inner battels they are few and far in between. Confidence and being self assured, independent, does help for overcoming the so called inner battles.


    • lifeconfusions says:

      Really??!! If you actually are ‘Happy as a hippo’ I’m ecstatic for you! Nothing better in life than to feel content 🙂

      But I’d like to assure there are more people than you count with inner battles. Almost everybody has gone through it atleast at some point in their life.

      P.S I don’t think being confidence, self-assured or independent has anything to do with that.
      But eh, you are entitled to your own opinion as I am to mine ! 😉


      • charlypriest says:

        It does have to do with it, I´m going to play with your mind, going to get into your brain and turn some neurons here and there ready……….hit it!

        O.K, if you are confident and self assured. Both things are interrelated. But you get there by knowing who you are, which means you know what you are capable of doing and what your limits are, what your virtues are as well as your flaws, admit them to yourself, be able to be comfortable with that reality of yours and that leads you to being self confident and self assured, hence you have much more less inner conflicts.

        Holly molly Jackolly! see? now you have changed your mind little Zee. Are you little by the way?…… 😉

    Ah, those inner battles both large and small, though I remember that at your age most are large, I know them well. There are many ways to find a truce and even a lasting peace. Being self-assured and doing what you like often helps to limit the casualties. I hope your battles leave no permanent scars, or, at the very least, the wounds work to make you stronger and better. Nice poem.

    As I am right in the middle of my latest depression battle, this was a very difficult read. I can’t agree that ‘nobody knows what it is like to have this storm inside’ as everyone who has suffered severe depression has felt that storm, although it is different for each individual. You did a good job of trying to capture what is essentially the human condition for far too many, struggle and war.


    • lifeconfusions says:

      I’m sorry that you are going through it, Depression is a dark pit I can never wish on anybody. I agree with you, maybe there are people who understand but I wrote it solely frommy perspective and right now I don’t have anybody who understands.

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment and the praise. With love,
      Zee ❤
