My letter to you

Dear Scars,

I think it's time that I finally address you because all these years I have done everything regarding you but this

I have lived in shame a fix 

And I know you know 

I've covered you oh

Covered you up all these years over and over again 

Because I was afraid that others could see you and judge me for having you, disdain 

I have lived in embarrassment 

Embarrassed all these years because you are a part of me I could not simply wash away as I meant 

I have tried to make you go away a time many 

A method any 

This is to you scars

The ones I've got in my heart chars

Because I dared to open up and love

And the ones I got on my skin because I was audacious enough to try, dive 

And to both because I have been blessed enough to live and experience this life 

I am done being ashamed it's strife

I am done being embarrassed

I am done trying to rid you off me I rest 

I accept you 

I embrace you scars 

All of you 

I cover myself with a white veil with us beneath it

Beneath it we come together and commune 

I will take what I felt you made ugly 

And I will turn it to beauty

I will take the pain of the experience and turn it to a memorable lesson 

I am transformed 

The caterpillar now a beautiful butterfly 

Dear scars, 

And I call you dear because I accept that that this what you are to me. 

I embrace you
