Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the way, there have been joys

Somewhere along the way, there has been pain

Somewhere along the way, there has been sweat

Somewhere along the way, there has been tears

Somewhere along the way, there has been blood

Somewhere along the way, I have done things some might consider heroic

Somewhere along the way, I have done things that  some could view as deplorable

Somewhere along the way, I went to places no one wants to go

Somewhere along the way, I went to places so beautiful it is hard to imagine without going for yourself

Somewhere along the way, I gave it all I had

Somewhere along the way, I never really tried

Somewhere along the way, I gained some “friends”

Somewhere along the way, I lost touch with those who meant the most

Somewhere along the way, I thought I had it all

Somewhere along the way, I thought I had lost it all

Somewhere along the way, I just wanted it all to end

Somewhere along the way, I couldn’t wait for it to begin

Somewhere along the way, I tried things I will always regret

Somewhere along the way, I tried things I will always love to try again

Somewhere along the way, I seemed to know exactly where I was headed

Somewhere along the way, I seemed to have misplaced my map and was lost

Somewhere along the way, I realized there was no turning back

Somewhere along the way, I sacrificed myself for my family, friends,co-workers, fellow soldiers, country

Somewhere along the way, I experienced the hell that war really is

Somewhere along the way, I am continually inundated with the fact that I will never be enough

Somewhere along the way, other strike me again and again that I will never have enough

Somewhere along the way, I learned that can never again be good enough

Somewhere along the way, the trials, tribulations, and disabilities became me instead of just a part of me

Somewhere along the way,  I became redefined into a miserable person

Somewhere along the way, I thought perhaps I could become at least a little less miserable?
