Standing in the shower
Skin turning redder

I stay still and soak it in
This water won't erase my sins

Scars stand out bright white
Burns and cuts all in sight

The real scars cannot be seen
They reside inside of me

I wonder if all I will be
is a creature scarred eternally?
Sadly accurate

your scars are what make you who you are. They are the words that tell your story, and therefor they are beutiful

I bow to you're poetry mastery *bows*. This poem is many things for me but the one that stands out is how closely it relates my unspoken thoughts and feelings. I face my scars every day. Whether they are hidden by long sleeves and jackets or if they're exposed to the air and water. Beautifully written, especially since it hits home for some of us. Thank you *bows*
