Scars

I’m here to bear witness

Of a universal renewal

Every time you attack me

All these scars burn

For all the torture

For all the pain

For all the blood

For all the tears

No more in silence

Because that’s violence

You tried to kill

What could not be killed

You tried to undo

What cannot be undone

You crossed the line

Your fate is sealed

Which is concealed

In the after doom

In the gloom

Of my despair

Where I was left

In pain to die

Bruised and bare

Holding on to life

Fascinated by the light

That even death

Holds a bitter sweetness

Wanting relief

Yearning to be free

I take refuge

In your light

In your love

Even in the stillness

Of your darkness

You heal these scars

Upon this heart
