    My Badge

    why should i be ashamed
    if i wear on my chest
    my badge of imperfection?
    it is a silent testament
    that i am human.

    so i let others speak of it,
    for their tongues only know me
    through words heard from mouths,
    but they have never gotten inside
    deep inside my skin,
    through the beats of my heart,
    beyond the complexities of my mind.

    i may not be perfect
    but who cares?
