I’ve got scars
Those kinds that burn in the back of your mind
I have written scars
Embroidered under my skin.
It happens to me
When my ears ring out
That I can’t hear anymore
When my eyelids fall heavy over my face
That I can’t see anymore
Then my mind goes blank,
The world stops
Then those scars
Burn hot hot hot
My head shakes in agony
Those scars.
I admit,
I too have scars
But I ain’t gonna let them stop me.
