CASC/ACSS Member Ciaran McKenna Shares Poetry

Ciaran McKenna has published a book of his poetry, “The Face of the Boy and Other Poems of Love, Life and Loss.”  Read Ciaran’s latest poem “Scorn Scars,” below.






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,
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,
