I’ve Known No Wars…
I’ve known no wars… only the ones I’ve had with myself.
I’ve known no poverty… only I struggle to put a roof over my head.
I’ve known no starvation… only I fear the food on my plate.
I’ve known no loss… only the one of my mind.
I’ve known no torture… only I’m covered in scars.
I’ve known no illness… except for the one that exists in my head.
