These lines are evidence of battles fought and won,

Of life

Of how you are a mixture of heaven and earth

Something amazing

Do not let them tell you otherwise

You are a warrior;

conqueror of bad days

Days when everything you are is not good enough

Fighting a war with the world and within yourself

These are the scars that remind you how far you've come 

These are your battle scars

Wear them with pride
