(Still) Traumatized

Maybe I am still suffering
from the trauma I went through
after “Coming to America”.

The pain cuts deeper than anyone
will ever know or understand.
Always lurking behind
the shadows of my craved happiness

and it still feels raw and sore
no matter how hard I work
my butt off to erase the marks

of so many bad episodes
from my late childhood
