SCAR OF THE MIND

Deep incision
On diseased inner fleeting flesh
Incision of,
Negative social orientation
Positive moral volition
Completely absent
In these black youths
Of the present
Charred and scarred
To be cured
Your only dark hope
Love

This is very insightful. A scar of the mind is difficult to heal and especially when it gets picked on every single day.
