Sleeping Soldiers

Many men:
Wounded soldiers
That never went to war.

Yet I still try to heal
Their rumored traumas.
Wrap bandages around
Their unspoken scars.
Soothe their desperate cries
In silent nights.

Sleeping soldiers
With nothing to fight
But themselves
In a defenseless world.

Put down your armor.
