Story Of Scars

by fenix flight   Jul 5, 2017

Scars on her ankle
scars on her legs
and on the back of her calf

These scars tell a story

a story of a girl
so fragile
one wrong move
could shatter her
to pieces

long forgotten scars on her arms
a faded cross on her left bicep
her initials clear as day on her leg

These scars tell a story

A story of a girl
Whose strong and brave
who keeps pushing on
no matter her pain

Scars so fresh
the blood still flows
down her leg

these scars tell a story

The story of me

    Every scar has a story. A great piece that is raw and true.

    Interesting poem. You showed how you can be fragile and strong at the same time.
    You pointed out how scars can show weakness, or they can show courage.
    My favorite line here was: "these scars tell a story." Because in a way it makes you think about what each scar means to a person, how they got the scar, stuff like that.
    Anyways, great job. :)
