a poem of intergration



Head throbbing

Eyes burning

Stomach clenching

Hands Shaking

Chest heaving

Ears ringing

Thoughts spinning

Feelings racing

Mind split


Pictures Flashing

Voices cry

Screaming pleading

Asking why

Never stopping

Cannot rest

Finding Strength

To pass this test

Pain pulses underneath

Scratching nails

and biting teeth

Time racing

Time Stopped

How much gained?

How much lost?
