    the sky is falling
    my ceiling of hope is at war with serenity.
    my limit of faith is decreasing
    i need an escape
    but have no where to hide
    from internal perception

    the scars have yet to appear
    and yet i feel less me
    less woman
    less sexy
    semi empty

    despite findings of others like me
    it doesn’t stop my personal pain
    others in debt
    wont erase my strains
    others with hope
    I only wish to regain


    and why me.
    my sky is falling
    that minor surgery
    has me thinking negativity
    searching for a release
    from internal perception.
    before the scars appear.
    Before it sets in
    Permanently.

    So many of us can relate to the rhyme of this piece.

    We have surgery to have something repaired, and that is wonderful, but then the scars are difficult to get used to. Understood, and well expressed poetess.
