“Seashell” – Muntinlupa, 29 July 2016

marked
by the
scars
left behind
by the
world,
like tattoos
marking
significant times
i crawl
into my
shell,
refuse to
come out
refuse to
let go.

living hurts
too much;
interaction
is a
burden:
and the
world
tells me
point blank
i am
worthless.

why bother
living
at all?
