19th Day of Lent                                            Poem

 

Scars are Pride

My scars are my pride

To show my strength

To show what’s happened

To me

 

They’re everywhere from head

To toe

 

They hurt me

But I’ve learned to keep going

 

Sometimes I feel like I

got shot down

But my scars remind me of

All the times

I fell

I tripped

I skinned myself on the road

And kept on going
