Flesh

img_2865

 

Then worms leech our skin

Then fire ants burn our within

Then third degree burns

Then our spouse hates us

Then our family calls us stupid

Then we regret ever trying to find more

…Than who we are

Then everyone passing us on

…The street stares at us

Then we trend on twitter as the worst human ever

Then we are popular

Then doctors talk of our “condition” on

…The show called Doctors

Then doctors call us

Then we are guinea pigs for the Surgeons

Then we are on a coma for six months

Then everyone gives up on us

Then we get up

Then we love God for our life

Then we thank the Surgeon

Then we meet our new life with joy and thanksgiving

Then we write this poem…
