Untitled Number Two (Real) This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Topeka, KS
I find it sad that we ignore it
like it never happened
as if these scars were accidents
a misplaced step
an inaccurate choice of movements;
clumsy.
I wonder what hurts more
knowing the pain behind every burn
every cut
or the fact it's supposed to mean nothing?
This girl is just as real as those scars
& the memories are far more sore
than the eyesore you claim them to be –
you say the world will judge me
should they see a single line
but these scars were my own judgment
for all that's in my mind.
