Rise, because they will never understand

They say he is a girl,
when he changes his clothes in private,
but they cannot understand,
what it means to have scars.

They say he is a spoilsport,
when he refuses to go to the beach,
but they cannot understand,
what it feels when someone notices his scars.

They say he is turing fat,
when he refuses to go shirtless,
but they cannot understand,
what it feels to be vulnerable in front of strangers.

They say he is conservative,
when he springs back to touch on his arm,
but they cannot understand,
what it feels if someone finds out his scars.

They say he is a coward,
when he showed them his scars,
but they cannot understand,
what it means to be a fighter, winning against himself.
