Scorn Scars.
I wear them not as
badges of honor, no,
rather shame,
rather blame,
rather not to name
the many
who did this to me ,
yet I did,
yet I did,
and again I died,
from scorn scars,
dismissed,
mocked and mimicked
they retold my story
to fit their ego
their standing
my falling.
Scorn scars,
we all wears them
oft afraid to bear them.
Can I trust you,
please.
