Scarred Heart (Poem)


A scarred  heart

Each tear has a cause

By indifference

Cruelty, malice

Some scars heal

Over time

Through acceptance

Love and seeking of peace

Yet even after healing

The hearts scarring

Has fibrous tissue pulled

When witnessing others

Going through the same

Reaching out

Holding them

Brings once again peace

Let us reach for those

Who’ve been there

That healing may begin;

Stand against the virus,

Which causes such scarring

So others will be left to

Live without disfigurement
