Why am I so afraid
Of pictures from my past
I know I’m safe at home today
And yet my panic lasts
I lived through this once before
I’m in no danger still
And yet I fear remembering more
Things done against my will
Flashback is such a simple word
For something filled with pain
For silent screams nobody heard
And people no one named
I have a voice
It’s different now
There’s nothing left to fear
Just whispers that control somehow
And bring the mem’ries near
No way over or around
I know I must go through
And using all the strength I’ve found
That’s just what I will do
