At War

One kind of war
In trenches, uniform
Knees in mud and rifle aimed
Struggles to find the burrowing softness
In death and chaos, stays
Constantly strained
Another kind
Wreaks havoc within
Yells at your frailties, clenches
Its fist and leaves
You holding your
Welts, your mind
Searches for a weapon
Of its own.
