A FADING SCAR

As a child,

Teacher’s words ripped at my soul,

Creating a deep wound on the heart and soul.

Years passed;

The wound became a scar,

Reopened by an unkind person.

Child’s fear returns.

Anxiety churns the stomach.

Hiding in silence no longer an option.

Can no longer cower.

Must face the fear,

An adult comforting the child within,

Standing tall with new strength

Shouting out, “I will no longer be stepped on!”

The wound closes,

The scar fading,

The child within set free.

A strong adult emerges.
