When life hands you lemons,make grape juice and then sit back and watch as the world wonders how you did it.

The scars cover my body
Reminding me of everything
They extend down my arms and legs
In neat, deliberate stacks

They look out of place
The ugly, twisting lines
Like demons on angelic turf
They dont belong

Up and down my arms
All across my thighs
I keep them covered
To keep people in the dark

Yet every scar tells a story
A story of the past
The maimed skin shows my battle scars
Reminds me of what I've overcome

But as time goes by
And new stories unfold
The scars fade away
With stories never to be told
