An Open Scar

an open scar that never healed

knees bent and always kneeled

An open scar that continues to bleed

truth always told and never believed

An open scar that continues to be open

continuing tears no words spoken

an open scar that cries out

not to be heard just pushed about

An open scar in a world full of hurt

a hand lifting in pulling up your skirt

An open scar hidden underneath clothes

kept quiet so that no one knows

An open scar in so much pain

burning. peeling driving me insane

An open scar being tortured and beaten

not taken care of or bandaged mistreated

An open scar chained and binded to a pole

in the dark scared and in the cold

An open scar terrified and petrified a fear unknown

Something’s people will never know.

Love milly

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
