The battles raging deep within
The hearts of human souls
Are fought on hidden battlefields
And take a costly toll
Behind the superficial mask
Worn politely in the room
Is a ravaged bloody being
Whose struggle started in the womb
Deep and sudden piercings
And the pain of a thousand rents
Wounds are sometimes self-inflicted
Other times by closest friends
But to the outside eye
There is little wartime proof
For the battleground is far below
Kind demeanors hide the truth
The travails of human tortured souls
Call for weapons not of men
The clash and roil deep within
Only with God’s help will end
Come quickly Lord to save us
Give us eyes to see the pain
Give us balm to sooth the trauma
Make us whole and healed again
