How did I get here

I keep repeating

As the drums beat

Deep in my mind

Causing tears to

Escape down my cheeks

How do I stop

The maddening cycle

Of lost days

Time spent healing

From a wound

Caused by someone else

How many times

Will life expect

Me to climb

Over another hurdle

Slow me down

Detour my days

How come everyone

Else sees the strong

Woman with no fear

Yet in the mirror

I see a lost

Confused little girl
