Someday it will all be okay

Breathing will get easier

And your skin will shine like new

 

And even though the scars remain,

They'll be like constellations

On the surface of your beautiful body

 

More than just random lines engraved

From one point to another

There to help find order within despondent chaos

 

They'll represent something greater

Your struggle, your fight, your pain,

Your gasps for breath as the waves crash over your head

 

Your little sky is beautiful

It's full of constellations

To remind you that your future is as bright as the stars
