THE STAIN

You grew up as a stain,
a blotch that spread
and couldn't self-contain.

Whereas purity lies
in the heart,
yours was broken
from the start.

Dirtied and laundered,
still soiled
in fearful disdain
you recoiled.

Loves wounds
unseen
can never be
washed away clean!

You've lived life
trying so hard to scour
when deep inside
you have not of the power.

And doesn't it bring
you such pain
To always be wearing
THE STAIN
