No One’s Scars Ever Match by Bekah Steimel

We think our wounds keep us separate

and unequal

we think our wounds are not understood

because they are not reflected

off another

But all pain is fraternal

sharing the genetics of hurt and disappointment

yet uniquely manifested

though my injuries may not mirror yours

though we may appear separate

and unequal

the common denominator of our tears

binds us all

with an invisible bandage

and we walk, tethered

through the gauntlet of existence

  1. Lindsey Graham recently said: A Trump Or Cruz Win Would Be Like ‘Being Shot Or Poisoned’ … the outcome wouldn’t be substantially different.” that’s how abuse in any form is…I NEVER dreamed quoting Lindsey Graham. :/
