Sitting here with my leprosy


must call "unclean, unclean"

Don't look at me

Don't try to see

the mold that is surrounding me

- The sin, The sin -

is all I am

That's all you see

I stand condemned


Sitting with my isolation

Don't look my way

'cause I'm contagious

The disease of me

you think you see

- is hidden -




So don't get close

Just look away

Invisibly I cleanse my stains

I hear the words

with mouths they say:

"Don't look at her

cause she's condemned."

"The silence is her punishment."
