Stages of Restoration I

I have a scare on my arm

A lumpy, nasty thing

It was self-inflicted

Again and again

With red hot iron

I was trying to chase

The demons away.

They didn’t leave.

Yet the flame turned

To a fire

And now a mark

That will not leave

A flag on the moon

That proclaims here

Is a man who hates himself

Has changed too.

Now it simply reads

Here is a man who

Hated himself.
