Scars and Wounds

There are scars that are invisible
To the outside world like
Self-inflicted wounds and
Battle scars, but there are also
Scars that are below the skin
That are invisible to the rest
Of the world. Iím the only one
Who can see and feel them
Everyday. The invisible scars
Come to show that only I know
What Iíve been through.
The rest of the world doesnít
Have to ask if Iím okay.
They donít have to pretend
Like they canít see the
Wounds and scars.
The wounds and scars donít
Always heal, but theyíre still
A part of the past. They made
Me stronger than whatever
Or whoever tried to hurt me.
So I should be proud that
I made it through and to remind
Myself that my story isnít over.
