It's a riddle....no, I'm not telling you the answer. You're more than welcome to tell me your guess...or not, as you please.

A riddle

I am:
A testament to the pain my bearer feels.
An ugly reminder of her folly.
A lasting memory of the times her
World was falling apart.
Something she will carry to
Her grave.
Something she wishes she never had....

What am I?

Actually, that's a good guess, but not what I had in mind when I wrote it. Thanks for guessing!

hmmm. kind of depressing, but...a cut? like, on her wrist? ah, sorry if I was way off...It makes sense, though, right? *sigh*

A burn? Like One of those permanent burn scars? you know when someone gets really burn their skin goes all weird and sometimes its permanent?

Could be a baby, like she was raped and had a child, that could be seen as an ugly reminder of worse times, its something permanent and depending on her agree she might not want it... either of them correct?

Not quite...Good guesses, though. The first guess was close....And everyone who's guessed so far makes me feel really shallow and un-creative, lol! Keep guessing, guys!

I know a heart is said up there, but I'll go one better and say a Broken heart? OK you've said a cut and a burn are close, so some physical hurt, ummm Is you look at the last part out of the box
"Something she will carry to
Her grave.
Something she wishes she never had...."
That could mean something she doesn't have, so maybe an amputated arm or log or something? But that only maces sence if you have a crazy mind like me, so my question is: Do you have a crazy mind like me?

*gives many cookies* Good job! You're the first to guess completely right in one go! (Although...it's probably not a good thing that you guessed right in one go...)

I really like the poem. It's sad though...we all have our crosses to bear, don't we? Mine is my autistic son and anxiety/depression. I want to add my essay out there about my son, but not sure if it's done.

I know the answer has already been posted...a scar or such. But I believe another answer that could fit is knowledge. Not that it's what you had in mind, but it's possible. haha..great job.
