I wish i could evade
or the night could just fade
I looked in the mirror...
and the scars still stayed

My heart thumped fast
where to escape..
I heard them laugh
the twelve year could not stop.

I ran so fast
they caught, i cried,
and they laughed.
The bruises on my heart
were deeper than the scars.

Now the 20 year old heart
still afraid to go that far.
Was i to be blamed that night
or b'cuz the night could not fight.

They said i was at fault
or else fault in my stars,
I thought maybe it was true
"you sure?" said my scars...

If that was my fault
why did the twelve year last,
if that was my fault
why mother never taught
that my scars are my reward,
of being a girl walking in dark.
And laughter were theirs
for having moustache
and a dark heart.
