Unseen Scars

Those wounds deeply inflicted

are the ones that never heal.

The verbal mental abusing

is the worst pain you ever feel.

You don't always remember

every brutal hit and smack.

But the spoken beatings you receive

are the unseen scars of attack.

The physical suffering is bad enough

you can hide your marks and welts.

But those horrible worded tortures

remain longer than the effect of that belt.

The vicious pummeling on your body

heals along with time.

Not so for the many unseen scars.

they stay forever in your mind.
