Scarlett Letter Place

Here I am

Sitting feet away

From where I was

When they put

A Scarlett letter

On me

Long ago

When who I was didn’t fit in

With what they believed

Here I am

It’s still on me

I can feel the burning

Against my skin

Just as deeply as I did

So many years ago

But here I am

Standing up

Holding on

With all I have

Scarlett lips

That won’t

Kiss and tell

I now wear stones

Much like those that were thrown

But these are now

Part of who I am

Scarlett letters

Etched into stones
