i don’t want

to live unscathed.

i want to live

like the moon

full of craters,

beautiful because

of my scars

not in spite of them.

    I’m sure I’ve said this before, but your posts always make me want to exhale (in a good way).

    “beautiful because of my scars” – lovely. There’s something amazing about people and how our development is so heavily shaped by life’s experiences. Every person, every scar = a story and a lesson that we can each learn from.

      Lovely indeed. I love scars, moles, birthmarks, and freckles. They do all have a story. I think they add character.
