Scars Shine

author’s note:

What is a hero?


Medals can be put in drawers
but not scars--

the wound can still
be found on the face
long after I've finished
the tedious process
of stitching myself up--

the bonded wound will shine.

I may lie but the white scar won't!

So I no longer bother to lie.

I haven't earned
any medals of any type
but my scars shine
even in the dark.
