September 2023 Poem

Poetry in large letters surrounded by books and a typewriter


My Past Is Also My Future

By David Rose, Sunday, April 16, 2017

Past, present and future
Are all the same for me
PTS my whole life through
No hope can I foresee 


Anxiety, vigilance and anger
Are with me every day
Living with this PTS
I guess it's here to stay

From a collection of original poetry from Vietnam War Veteran, David Rose, diagnosed with PTSD by the Veterans Administration, who wanted to make the poems available to the public as an educational tool to everyone who is interested. It is his sincere wish that someone will find his heart-felt writings useful.
