There are many scars on this body of mine:
There is a one inch scar on my forehead
Where my dad bumped me with a pool stick

There is a half inch scar in the middle of my left arm
Where I broke my arm on the trampoline

There is a scar on my right shoulder
Where I hit the diving board

There is a scar at the bottom of my left foot
Where I stepped on a rusted nail

There is a burn scar on my right hand
Where my sister put a curling iron

There are scars on my torso
Where I was in a car wreck

But there is a smooth patch of skin right above my heart
For that is your for the taking
