Exposure

The judgemental glares start,
They snarl at me,
They mock me,
Malicious convictions,
Collective commentary,
Cruel punishments,
Out cast they call me,
Sket',
Loose Cannon',
A pound a pull',
Prostitute,
Callous Hoe',
Despite the abuses,
Despite the torment,
I stood my ground,
It did not matter what they called me!
I knew who I was!
I may have fallen short in the past but that does not define who I am!
We all have a past but we also have a future!
