These scars on my arms tell a story

They tell of a time of sorrow and loss

They tell of a time of fear

They tell of a time I lied to myself to say I was OK.

These scars I covered for so many years Tell of a time I said I was OK when I wasn't

They tell of a time I was down and couldn't find my way out

They're a sign of survival

They're apart of me they tell my story

The ugly marks are my beauty in life, and for that I am proud


The author's comments:
I am recovering from self-harming. I've been battling with depression, and I feel the only thing beautiful about me are the ugly marks on my arms that show what I've been through.

This is for those who self harm and want to stop. Your scars are beautiful too, and even after you stop (which please do) they are a sign of triumph when things get hard.
