I bear my scars
As a badge of honor

My pain
Is a crown, 
my fear, a crescent

I carry my battle
On my lips

And my shadows, 
In my eyes

I will wander when lost
And whisper in silence

I will never regret
And never undo

I am more than my scars
bigger than my body
Larger than my dream 

Aged beyond my years
Wrinkles line my mind

Yet so small
The dream so little

The future
So unknown
