Branded

(2011)

Your head full of questions,

But all you do is stare,

The images burn deep,

But the punishment seems fair…

.

The flames swallow with greed,

The iron burns red hot.

Fear shows on their faces,

But mercy is a virtue forgot.

.

Their screams of agony fill the air,

Paired with searing skin.

You draw back and try to escape,

As you know the pain they are in.

.

The scars still show on your body

The nightmares replay in your mind

The punishment seeks justification,

"You have to be cruel to be kind."
