Self

By: Michael Appleman

After the injury you changed a lot
The look you see is not so hot

People may not see who you truly are
That is due to the look of the scar

Spirits from others can show us all
We suffered but they act as if they will fall

They do not see our inside
For most the fear of our scars are their guide

The burn survivor community allows us to be
The inner beauty for us all to see

When together in any way
Our lives can show who we are each day

Others may not tell how they feel
Our lives is not what they want to steal
