Permanent Scars

by Aiko (Dreamsurfer)   Aug 4, 2020

Jinja left a permanent scar on my right thigh.
It reminds me of,
The first neighbour's daughter I ever loved like myself,
Because I was playing football with her when I got the cut.
Bukoto Suburb in Kampala City,
Left scars on my right ring finger and right sole,
Altered my fingerprint.
Kyebando left circumcision scars on me.
Mukono left a scar on my heart.
While Arua left a motorcycle exhaust pipe burn scar,
On my left leg.
