These scars remind me of all the things that I fear

These scars remind me of the fact that you are no longer here

These scars remind me of endless months of sadness

These scars remind me of moments of deranged madness

These scars remind me of feeling cold and empty

These scars remind me of a strange sense of serenity

These scars remind me of my past that I can’t let go

These scars are everything that I know

 

These scars remind me of precious time that I can’t get back

When life was passing me by way too fast

When I am all alone and sadness consumes me

I am reminded of the person that I used to be

 

Why did I ever pick up that blade?

I cannot undo the damage that has been made

I wish that these scars weren’t on my skin

Because I am sick of getting flashbacks whenever I look at them

 

But I need to remember that I have changed

And I have learned from my mistakes

So when I look at my scars, I shall see

A new beginning, a better me
