Their Replacement

Belittle me, if you will. Throw those stones at my flesh. I cannot do anything back I shall not do anything back. So harm me. Please, just scar me. And make myself feel that such pain. I will sit there for you. I will not move. Please take your fill of mutilating such another Take that fill upon myself, if you please. I will become the replacement. Just beat me. Just only me. My friends did nothing wrong. I will endure that such pain which is meant for their flesh. I will take all of it-all of it, for my friends. Just do not harm them. Just leave them alone.
