O Scar Award For Best Performance. - Poem by Glenn Cassidy

A scar that has healed
is just that much tougher
than your innocent self,
speaks silently of life lived
audaciously if incautiously
voraciously not vicariously.

Your wound is
intimate not distant,
forgetting is easy
remembering hard

Pain belongs to your body
It is not you.
Pain is separation.

Thank you.
