PTSD

Who hit replay

Shut it off

No not today

Life can be rough

Enough is enough

 

The past is passed

so why must it last

This loop in my head

I constantly dread

 

Who hit replay

Shut it off

No not today

Life can be rough

Enough is enough

 

PTSD is not for me

PTSD must cease to be

Got to get it out of my head

These thoughts that I have come to dread

keep playing over inside my head

 

Who hit replay

Shut it off

No not today

Life can be rough

Enough is enough

Author's Notes/Comments: 

PTSD...we all have it in our own way...we need to stop letting it get the best of us...so much time wasted on things that cannot be changed and need to be forgotten...permanently erased...learn whatever lessons from it and move on and keep living and learning...easier said than done but thoughts to ponder nonetheless...you are not alone. Keep dreaming, keep hoping, keep living life to the fullest...take nothing for granted....be greatful...Focus on the positive.Peace.

I have suffered PTSD as a war

Focus on the breath daily formally for an hour day in the mourning and in the late afternoon or everning The mind will come and go and as your concentration deepens your mind; the sorce of constriction fear anzierty will quiet The challange is to remind your self to do this often Focusing on the breath as opposeed to thoughts and feelings is profoundly healing DO IT for days weeks months years it will heal and heal and heal like an endless salve
