I'm ProudMature

It's funny because I am not worried
I am proud in fact.
Proud that I finally managed to do something bad
Something that bad
Something so bad you all tell me
"It might get infected"
"Cover it up"
"That looks terrible
Horrible
Disgusting".
Proud that it isn't a cut on my finger.
Not a cat scratch.
It's something real, something bad.
Proud that it hurts when I lean on things
A little
Not much though.
Proud that you all agree that it looks painful and
Yet I do not feel that much pain.
Proud that I am strong enough to
Rip it off
Again
And again.
Proud that I could show you the physical pain
That I should feel
But don't.
Proud that I am now wearing my hurt
On the outside
For all of your eyes to see.

I am not worried that it will get infected
Nor that it will hurt or that I will
Fall
And hurt it more.
I am not worried at all.
Only proud.

The End
