Scars

The tissue remaining as testament to the pain
The residual deformation reminder of trauma
Scar, mark, brand, tattoo
Slashed with glass in a bar
Gouged by stone from a fall
Stabbed by a thug
Burned after the explosion
The slow to fade imprint of the sting
The lingering evidence of the lashes
Scraped with asphalt
Ripped by razor wire from a fence
Bit by a dog
Battered after the fight
Our scars are our lessons
