    An unpleasant silence wraps around me with a lingering restlessness that won't fade
    I am whole but unaware of this wholeness
    I yearn for baby like arms around my neck
    soft skin brushing against my own youthful exterior
    I find myself wandering after firm hands to keep me from rocking
    back and forth in my sweat drenched slumber
    My soul feels hollow and searches for the blanket of a hug
    that envelopes it day and night
    This loneliness has birthed a doubtfulness in a mind once stable
    Obscurity has replaced a one time know it all
    My pride has succumbed to calls of humility
    The path I walk is no more special that that of my brothers
    I struggle to grasp what it is to be a warrior
    What it is to be a warrior

    Solitude now seems like a plague I want to avoid
    The world outside me breeds activity; a harsh reality of ugly noise
    I don't want to jump
    The world inside of me seeks companionship of a friend
    unpretentious and true
    I long for the touch of a chubby, scarily soft baby hand on
    my tear soaked cheek
    Letting me know that innocence is bliss - sometimes - but never saving
    that pride is overrated, humility overlooked, truth ever present
    And loneliness just an attempt to quiet my ever battling soul
    of a Warrior​

    This is the second time I read this piece, and I still don't quite know what to say, but... You so eloquently wrote of what a strong soul feels, when it has been beaten down. Yet...the soul shall rise again. Powerfully scribed.
