My scars tell a story
Of what my mouth can not
Of the unspoken words not voiced
Of things that will never be forgot

My scars were my voice
As I used the canvas of my skin
To express the unspeakable
To give recognition of what's within

My scars show a journey
Of more than learning to talk
They map my pathway to expression
Emotionally, learning to walk

My scars show my strength
When I thought I could not last
They remind me everyday
I am not my past
