scares

 

scares,
at an early age
we start
acquiring

scares,
events that alter
life's path, reshape it's
trajectory

scares,
never healing, living deep
within our soul, within our lives
eternally

scares,
manipulating all will
controlling us
always

scares,
big, small, minor or grievous
we carry them all
internally

scares,
accidentally or though intent
they are severely
inflicted

scares,
ugly, red and oozing
very painful to
examine

scares,
cause so much stress
heart break, anxiety and
torment

scares,
years later we
learn they meant
nothing
