The scars on my wrist

Remind me of a place

A place that I ran away to

With the most furious of haste

The scars on my arms

Will tell you a story

Of a young, intelligent fool

Who sought romantic glory

Needed not at all

Is an explanation

The scars on my legs

Will tell you of my celebration

I am so impressionable

Yet so misunderstood

I would let you feel the scars

If you even could

Of my evils, something is there to sing

My former self being taken under its wing

The scars that run along my being

Is the damage left from a sure thing

The author's comments:
Something I wrote in Creative Writing, and it was required we write something from an "inspirational" piece. This turned out to be Miguel's Sure Thing song, which I disagreed with the "Sure Thing" portion of it, so I decided to write one of my many poems of heartbreak with the same title, although no infringement is intended
