Tissue

Here’s the thing
about scars.
They aren’t hideous
or unsightly.
They aren’t signs of failure
but rather
a sign of the living.
That you surpassed
whatever it was
that you thought
would kill you.
And perhaps,
even better,
each one is indicative
of an incredible story,
for no two scars
are ever alike.
So wear your scars
like medals,
with pride.

You’ve earned them.
