I’ve come too far for you not to respect

My Scars

Pages left unturned; happiness passed up because lessons never learned.

I go back to the same mistakes repeatedly, conceitedly thinking it will be different

You see,

I come from a bloodline of

warriors, peacekeepers, leaders, and healers.

I will never give up on humanity no matter what it throws at me.

My Scars

reminds me of what I have

endured, withstood, resisted and survived

to see them is what keeps me Alive.
