Shameful Hands This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
     My father’s eyes
shamefully snare the scratch
that rests on my face.
like smears upon fresh snow.
Yet he is too familiar with
the hands that carved the foul mark, and
stubborn like the roadside boulder,
he refused to cease,
etching another.

The short poem packs a punch, it's really amazing--and as said by angel*...it's intense. Always write.
