I wear my heart on my sleeve

a frightening sight

shown only to those

who fought the fight.

Torn and bleeding,

black and blue.

The obvious evidence

beaten and bruised.

I wash my shirt

the color fades

red to black

hardly God-made.

Neither pain nor sorrow

today or tomorrow.

Scars heal slowly

mercy to borrow.
