pushed

Somebody pushed me

standing on the stairs

a little child

full of pride

tumbled to the ground

the edge of the blade

ground deep in my scalp

i turn to look

at a mother staring down

Somebody pushed me

standing on the stairs

the scar is with me still

so close to my eye

sometimes I wonder why

I'm not dead already

instead of just maimed

then again

sometimes

I look inside my own brain
