I am orange and scarred

I wonder where we can go from here

I hear people screaming

I see fear of shattered generations

I want to help them all

I am orange and scarred

I pretend to have no anger

I feel abandoned

I touch emptiness in other's souls

I worry they feel unlovable

I cry for what they have lost, given away, had taken from them

I am orange and scarred

I understand that pain is a separate language

I say truth that I myself struggle to trust

I dream of what should be, lives free from sorrow

I try to follow God's healing words

I hope for justice, peace, redemption, resolution, LOVE

I am orange and scarred
