Scarred on the inside not on the out.

Scarred on my mind without a doubt.

Scarred where no one can see, in the head.

Scarred in another world. A world for the dead.

Scarred, all over, not like the tamed.

Scarred... Should I be ashamed?

The author's comments:
I was inspired by this when I was upset with myself, thinking I was different.

Ernest Hemingway: I hate it. 
Gil: You haven't even read it yet. 
Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

Wow, nice job. I liked the refrain of 'scarred,' and also how you ended the poem with the question (and no, I don't think you should be ashamed :3 ). The only things I would change is in the last line, I think more syllables should be added to make it flow better and then in the first line after 'inside,' a comma needs to be added. Overall, very nice poem! :)

Life is a maybe. Death is for sure. Sin is the cause. Christ is the cure. :)

Love is the breath of God, and prayer is the melody that makes it sing.

If you cant annoy someone, there's no point in writing.

Love is overrated, marry for money.

I just love the way you write! I love how it rhymes, although some times it feels forced, but it's still very good!
