Journey with Epilepsy Part 2

I awaken to the loud drone of the C-17 Globemaster Cargo Plane. Only a few inches from my face is the black meshy bottom of another NATO stretcher. It is not dark, but he lights are dim. The loud hum of the engines echo through my ears and body a steady drone.


I have been a Failure
I have been a Failure at being a Man
I have been a Failure at being a Friend
I have been a Failure at being a Spouse

A Loud Bang is Heard as a door is slammed shut
The feelings of loss and despair engulf as the opportunity for
redemption slips away.
