"The strongest may survive, but the loudest is the first to be heard."

My scars are
The rough parts of
The stories you wonder
And when I finally get
Enough courage
To tell you
Your tears over power
My words
My scars are the bits
Of my soul
That curled up and
In the dark cave
Life lead me too far into
Long ago
Long before you
Taught me to feel
To love once more
My scars are my
War medals and my
Scarlet letters
My scars are fading
But not fast enough
My scars are unnumbered
Unnamed yet each one is
Branded into my
My scars are my fears
My battles won
My failures
They say my scars are
My scars are apart of me
The only
Beautiful part left

I wrote this piece when I was forced to confront my past with self injury. I needed a way to explain it to my boyfriend and all I had was this.
