My greatest regret

I have had my mind shattered
My body broken
My spirit torn asunder

I’ve been on missions than never happened
In units that do not exist
With technology never invented

My memory is nothing but isolated fragments
Haunting echoes of events that can not be real
Never present yet always intruding

I’ve seen children explode in mud and blood
Innocents become killers to survive
Evil walking on two legs praised

Every night is torture
Day confusion
Evening terror

I go on

My life consists of pain
Regret
Sorrow

I know nothing
Say less
Remember more

My anger knows no bounds
Is deeper than expression
Seethes seeking an escape

I don’t want your pity
Never asked for your sympathy
Deserve no forgiveness.

I am a soldier
I am a survivor
I am alive

And that is my greatest regret.
