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.
