These scars won’t last
They might hurt now
The pain just feels too real
Will they ever go away?
These scars cut deep
They are changing you
You can barely think anymore
Will it ever become normal again?
These scars are opening a new chapter
They could become positive
But, right now, they feel deadly
Will it ever feel good?
These scars have taken something from you
Maybe it’s happiness, or sadness
Or, innocence, or willingness
Or, maybe even your life?
But, even with these scars
You are still here
There’s still time
So, what will you do now?
“These scars is a metaphorical poem I wrote during a confusing time in my life.
The scars mentioned (while they could be real scars) represent past mistakes/memories that will never be forgotten, and that are constantly haunting and hurting.”
Thank you for reading to the end!
I hope this poem encourages you to turn your scars into amazing things for your future self because it’s never too late!
P.S. This poem was also inspired by this song!
