Not with shamedo I bear my scarsnor with prideare they worn –each was earnedon its own fieldand I owe themwhat I’ve sworn.Some long fadedstill ache at times,less of the fleshand more in the soul;those the deepestwere wrought in the stormsbetween you and Iand remind me I am old.Those on the surfacebetray the secretsso carefully hiddenbeneath...

This sudden realitywasn't so sudden –it was always there,just not alwaysas it is now:veiled and cloakedbehind a wall of lightradiant and full,naked in its splendor,a truth hiddenonly by perception.
