I Waited and Waited until my Scars Faded

I always worried that people would notice and ask
In order to avoid any awkwardness or worrisome expressions, I came up with excuses for everyone
My family -- friends --coworkers
I spent day after day coming up with excuses until I realized that no one was going to ask

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
