Blue Steel (Fighting PTSD)


How do you feel? How do you feel?
When PTSD makes you chew on blue steel.
Seriously l already know
from all of my episodes so long ago.
It's like all those painful memories emerge as one
and the only escape is the barrel of a gun.
Drinking at the time didn't help me at all
and many times almost led me to fall.
Drunk with a round in the chamber of a cocked rifle finger on the trigger and barrel in my mouth.
A person might be able to say PTSD had taken me so far below south.
So many in pain from PTSD never live long enough to ever be free.
So if it's a noose, knife, pills or the taste of blue steel.
Please fight PTSD with all of heart and your Will...
