Those scars that we bear on our arms
Those things that we have to hide from our family and friends
Those things that haunt us everyday.
Scaly, rough and tough lasts for so long
But the most important thing ...
Is the reason behind it
The reason why it all started in the first place The reason why they did it
Yet no one really wonders why
They all ask about the scar
How's it going. How's it doing
While they forget what it symbolizes
The power the scars have ...
What they can possibly cause
And what they will lead to
And after it heals, what happens?
People start to forget
And people will continue what they had started
And the cycle will start once again
Until the victim runs out of room in their body to scar
That is when the thing they decide to scar
Is their lifeline
When they are far long gone
Do people start to realize their wrongs
And what they really did to this person
They remember the times he/she has told them to stop
They remember when he/she started to get less quiet
Less happy, less energetic
They finally realized how
What they did to this person was something they should had never done in the first place
Yet it is too late to go back
Back when they were here
