Ask me if I have ever felt pain
I shall show you my scars,
I wear them in defiance
Of life and those who inflicted them
And those who wish to add some more.
The scars I wear I wear with pride,
For not being willing to compromise
My dignity, my values or my beliefs to those,
Who wanted to oppress me and take control of my life.
I am no for sale,
So don’t try and buy me,
For refusal offence offends.
