Shame – Joy Woolford

Shame

Calling your name

Wants to bring you down

So you can never be found

 

Shame

Is not a game

It hurts and smarts

Like long pointy darts

 

Shame

Meant only to maim

You can give it back

To the source of lack

 

Shame

A slow burning flame

Extinguish the burn

Never to return

 

Shame

Is all about blame

Doesn’t exist

A dissipating mist

 

Shame

Just a freeze frame

A moment in time

To be redefined

 

Shame

Has no claim

Let it go

From whence it came
