Bruised

~By Sharlene Hamlet


They stare in distaste
As I walk by.

I held my head high,
While inside I cried
Shamed and disgraced.
Why can't they see beyond my face

Life isn't fair.
My luck has yet to change.
Lost and confused,
Hurt and misused,
Worthless in their eyes.

I'll forgive their cruelty,
But I'll reject their company.
Memories will not allow me.

Scars unhealed and unseen
Are always there to remind me.
