scar on my neck

beloved imagery of one as a whole
something i will not ever fathom or ever know
for as a newborn my eyes were doomed to challenge
left eye lost at age two
in agony in growth...not know what to do
three years ago something appeared uninvited no less
behind my ear...not in my heart or breast
ignorance served daily knew no better
as one day on that very ignorance i choked
doctor says its a tumor and it will leave a scar
life flashes before me
of the last three years...especially a year ago when i flipped my precious...three times
my car
the mistakes that i endured
the words that i spoke
the nights that i was away
the cuts that i instigated
with a scar on my neck
all because i waited
inches not bit by bit inches from behind my ear
and down
it may be raining
but i am on my knees begging God...don't let me drown
forgive me for my ignorance the wrong...every sin
for i knew not where i was... but i confess where i have been
