Scarred by Adri Roothman Buys

Poem

They lured me in
with prejudice of play.
I was a child so young
with innocent brown eyes
staring at the trusting adult hands,
big and misjudgingly “friendly”
folding over mine.
My adult hero
who lost his wings.
I am now a broken being
that sits with the scars
of YOUR dirty hands.
