Scars

They say you wouldnít make it
And that youíll die before
You get to the very top.
Youíre still here, arenít you?
And where are they?
They are still stuck at
The bottom and still canít
Make it past the first step.
Although theyíve
Fought every day and
Have the scars on their skin
To prove it, they donít
Know what itís like to have
Ones on the inside where
Theyíre invisible. They have
The physical scars for
Everybody to see, but
What about the ones on the inside?
You canít show them your scars
Because they donít know what
Itís like. They think youíre lying
Because they canít see anything.
Itís not about seeing the scars,
Itís about feeling them.
The scars on the outside will
Fade and heal, but the ones
On the inside are still there.
They are a reminder that
Youíre fighting battles
Everyday just like everyone else.
Whether you fought something
Physical or emotional,
It doesnít matter.
What matters is that
You survived and
Made it through life.
Weíre all survivors.
