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……….
