Must I be an expert in describing my pain,

never mind that I endure it.

So curious, yet equally dubious.

Dismissive in reproach.

 

Steady imposing a mantra of change, reconciled odium.

But how can you recognize the weathering of skin, when your's has never been left to burn.

Or better, the healing of scars etched before a single sin.

Do not tell me a thing, only kin.
