Acne Scars



He was teased and felt like a disgrace
As they laughed at the acne on his face
He didn't want to but he felt he needed to change
Get rid of acne and get new friends in range
So he went home and to his own bathroom
Locking the door and brightening the gloom
He pulled off the bench a shaving blade
And with a tear the first cut was made
The next day he wore a mask
And made avoiding people his task
But still they crowded and laughed and teased
Another tear he wasn't pleased
He rips the mask sewn to his skin
Revealing the valley of scars within
The others scream, vomit ,and run away
Their memories etched with this day
