Marked

Marked.
Branded, like livestock, to assert ownership and deter cattle rustlers.

Marked.
Tattooed, like slaves of days gone by, to show they have a Master.

Marked.
Badged, with yellow, but not a star, to highlight difference and induce prejudice.

Marked.
Painted, in shades of black and blue, not Scarlet, to tell the world of my character.

Marked.
Bruised, to remind and reinforce just where I belong.
