The marks brand her
To her relief the scares are hidable
Really it becomes a whole other burden though
Hiding the story behind the injuries
And some days…..
The Days of the sweltering desert sun.
Or the over crowded pool parties
She wishes those injuries didn’t exist
If she had only handled her pain some other way
How lucky are thos who can wear shorts.
Complaining in such vain.
About some dimples, fat, not being brown Enough!
When I just want to have Fun without the Scars
But alas the scars tell my Story.
I hope to wear them in comfort someday……….
