"The marks humans leave are too often scars."- from The Fault In Our Stars


Why don't you paint me 

Like I am

Smiling and laughing with my friends

Walking through the town

The sun beating on my back

Why don't you paint me 

Like I am

Paint me giggling and playing 

without a care in the world

Paint me cheerful 

Singing to the high heavens 

Paint me beautiful 

My dress shining in the night sky

Paint me with the fierceness

That every woman has deep in her soul

Paint me when I remember

That I am beautiful

That I am strong

But most importantly

Paint me without sorrow

Paint me without pain 

And Paint me with kindness
