Scars (Part 2 of 10)

Her heart broke so many times
When people who should have known better
Trampled on her thoughts
Suffocated her ideals
Burned her dreams
And told her that she will never inherit the earth
It was not hers
Her heart froze a zillion times
When people who had no right
Cast the first stone
When people who had feet of clay
Threw mud
When friends who had no brains
Called her silly
When family who should have known better
Laughed at her hurt
Rip rip rip
It's only fun
Get with the program
She has no problems
When we maul her
When we tease her
When we shock her
When we humiliate her
After all, we're only kidding
After all, we're only playing
She's just sensitive
And why should she be?
All we're saying is the truth
All we're pointing out
Are her flaws
All we're staring at
Are her scars
She's lived with them all her life
She should be used to it
