"I Am Made of Scars" is a hard rock song by the band Stone Sour. This is one of many bands I listen to, but this song in particular has such a strong lyrical content in my opinion, that I thought of taking the lyrics and putting a poetic twist on it; this is what I got.

Should you want to listen to the actual song by the band, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_ug2_7PNDA

I also suggest the song "Omega" by the same band for those looking for some strong lyrics. I believe the main singer (also the main singer of Slipknot) is a really good lyricist/poet.

Here are the original lyrics to "I Am Made Of Scars":
This one came from looking
This one opened twice
These two seem as smooth as silk, flush against my eyes
This one needed stitches and
This one came from rings
This one isn't even there, but I feel it more because you don't care

Yeah, Cut right into me
Yeah, Cause I am Made Of Scars
Yes I am made of scars

This one had it coming
This one found a vein
This one was an accident, but never gave me pain
This one was my fathers and
This one you can't see
This one had me scared to death,
But I guess I should be glad I'm not dead!!

Yeah, Cut right into me
Yeah, I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

God, Don't you believe the hype?

And I will find a way
Everything you are I will betray
Oh, I swear that I will find a way
Everything you are's inside me

This one was the first one
This one had a vice
This one here I like to rub on dark and stormy nights
This one was the last one,
I don't remember how
But I remember blood and rain
AND I NEVER SAW IT COMING AGAIN

Yeah, Cut right into me
Yeah, Cause I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

That's what I'm made of!!!

I AM MADE OF SCARS – Ode to Stone Sour

This one taints my face,
This one hides its grace,
These two shine bright, victims of a street fight,
This one made me weep and
This one cut me deep,
This one I don’t miss because it makes me reminisce.

These scars define me,
This pain sets me free,
I am what I want to be.

This one I couldn’t circumvent,
This one was money well spent,
This one came from you, my payback’s overdue,
This one was child’s play,
This one I regret every day,
This one is darkness abound,
But it’s made me renowned.

These scars define me,
This pain sets me free,
I am what I want to be.

God, won’t you leave me alone?

I will make it on my own,
My sins, I will atone,
I swear, I will make it on my own,
My sins, I will turn to stone!

This one won’t be the last,
This one haunts my past,
This one I make bleed, out of masochistic need,
This one starts a new collection,
As it spreads the infection,
But it doesn’t end here,
BECAUSE I HAVE YET TO SHED A TEAR.

These scars define me,
This pain sets me free,
I am what I want to be.

I am made of scars…
