Scars ~ A Duet

November 29, 2014 at 6:01 pm 10 comments

I had the wonderful privilege and honor to ‘dance’ a duet with Bruised Belly. This subject weighs heavily on me, as I am certain it does for ‘all’ of us. We deal with it by hiding, wearing masks or whatever else is effective… Before she published it, she asked me if I felt the title “Scars” is alright. I told her that I really cannot think of another word which describes what they are – the thing about scars is that most people equate them with the physical marrings that is seen with the naked eye. The fact is we all have scars – and when some people are faced with these scars – whether they are on the skin or “emotional turmoil” – I believe they are challenged and this is where judgement pops in for the stab. They are challenged to face their own scars – or shall we call them imperfections, because this is what they ‘judge them to be’. They may not come right out and say it, but I believe – I know – they are thinking and feeling it.

The Migraine Chronicles

By Words4jp & BruisedBelly

Scars, Yours, Mine, Ours
Beautifully adorning the in and outside of us
Dripped in filth and lies and truth
Cutting deep, Binding me and you

But there are a few answers I seek
At what point will these binds become too overwhelming?
When will you decide to turn a deaf ear or a blind eye?
When will my scars become a liability – to you?

I hear your questions, I feel your hurt
I see your beauty and your worth
Your scars, your cuts , your pain
They are yours with mine, the same

You may say this now,
But how can I believe you?
My faith has been crushed by words such as these,
By voices who have spoken the same to ME

Your fear is acknowledged and understood
We are all mere human, therefore made to fall
Expectations fall short and promises fail
