Poetry- Wounds By Christine Miskonoodinkwe Smith

Wounds open
And fester inside
Bringing forth a pain
I cannot adequately describe

Wounds open
And fester inside
Though I know I’m not alone
And there’s countless other
Sixty Scoopers who feel the same

My pain from yesterday
Compounds with today’s
And becomes fresh once more.

Wounds open
And fester inside
Bringing forth a pain
I cannot adequately describe

I try to hold the tears inside
But I no longer can

The wounds of the past
Have hit me once more
And I’m triggered again
With words

That once again
Leave me feeling raw
And vulnerable once more
