Left His Mind in the Warzone

He had, left his mind in the warzones, he went to serve as he’d turned eighteen, and, since he got back home, nothing was the same, he still got up for work, went there, from five, to nine, and sometimes, he’d stayed late nights, to work the graveyard.

Left his mind in the warzone, and he can’t get it back again.  Left his mind in the warzone, and, after the war was over, he’d gone back, to the site where he thought he’d left his mind, and, he couldn’t find his mind again, and, his mind, was lost, for good.

Left his mind in the warzone, even though, he’s back home now, he started having nightmares, and started behaving weird, and, he’d cut himself off from everybody he knew, isolated himself.  Left his mind in the warzone, there’s NO way he can get it back again, the war’s been over, for over three decades, and, he’s still in the mental institution, being treated, for his PTSD from the war.

Left his mind in the warzones, how?  After he saw so many atrocities, he kinda just got “stumped” in his mind, and, he couldn’t make his mind move an inch, out of the warzones………
