pimples are simple, eruptions on skin;
scars, complex relics, obscure origin.

pimples are bright, abrupt bumps looking mad;
infected with fight, they show up red clad.

scars too flash fire when first freshly sealed;
when older, they fade, birth anguish concealed.

pimples recede, leaving almost no trace;
deep scars endure, tracks of timing and place.
