Night Terrors

Night Terrors
What is your deepest darkest nightmare?
Where you sleep with teeth clenched and under your lids your eyes glare.
Or those mornings you awake drenched in sweat,
from those terrible thoughts you can't forget.
So many can't understand the pains you go through,
when sleep paralysis or night terrors terrify you.
Personally I've only had this happen a time or two,
but I can totally relate to what happens to others that do.
The human mind can be so beautiful and strong
but when it's been tortured by traumas you can be haunted with thoughts often wrong.
Like ending your life to escape the pain
I was there also in the past but with help I remained.
So for those of you that fight these battles at night
Or even the day when triggers bring your fright.
The best suggestion I can offer to you
is seek a personal program that suits the pains you go through...
