MLMM Photo Challenge — You Will Always Be You

I was your pawn and you used me for your own selfish purposes.

I didn’t nourish your haughty ways enough to satisfy you.

I didn’t lift up your ego sufficiently to make you feel good about yourself.

In your uncontrolled rage, you had no qualms about taking that knife and slashing my cheek.

In time, though my scar will heal.

But you are who you are and you will always be you.
