You can try to pull me down hurt me with harsh words break my spirit set up obstacles in my way and knock me down but I will never give up! I bear the scars from all the fights and I wear them proudly they might make me flawed but to me, they are reminders of all the battles I have faced they are proofs of my perseverance. Each scar tells a different story stories, ripe with lessons lessons that helped me grow lessons that transformed me into a better version of myself. Scars and battles don't faze me I am determined to keep fighting at all costs for all that is fair and right
Scars, both physical and otherwise, tell a story of the fights you have ever fought. They are not flaws. In the journey if life’s ups and downs, it is hard to walk away without a single scar. But they teach us valuable lessons and are a proof of all that we have survived. Alessia Cara’s Scars To Your Beautiful was playing in my head as I wrote this poem. It’s a beautiful song.
