i hope you find someone who loves you for your scars.

your scars are the battles you fought
alone, scared, broken at midnight
navigating the map of your lost soul,
wearing nothing but threadbare dreams,
with demons who would not die,
and who could not rest.
and still strong, you fought on.

i pray you find someone who loves you for your scars

your scars will tell the stories your lips cannot.
your scars will reveal secrets your heart cannot.
your scars will create meaning to the little things you do.
so find someone who loves you for your scars.
this is all that I can pray for, for you
and for you,
and for you...
I wish everyone in the world had someone who loves them for all their scars and heartbreaks. :hug:

I want to add that the line "and still strong, you fought on" might be the best line you can say to those who self-harm. Maybe the poem isn't only directed to those, since scars that tell ones past can also be inflicted by others or even non-physical ones, but that was what I thought of first.

You might find my piece - The most unlovable man in the world to be of some interest, along with the sequel.  Be sure to check out the audio links. :)

some people try to damage us
and then claim the damage will make us unlovable
secretly what they fear
is that others will discover
that it is they who are unlovable
because of the damage they inflict on everyone
