What scars do you have?
What stories do they tell?
Of battles fought, of lessons learned,
and all those times you fell.
The scars upon my knees
show how often that I tripped.
Accident upon accident
and so clumsy I probably flipped.
A scar just below my nose
and just above my lip.
A close call with a rake
and the one time I needed to trip.
The scar upon my right foot
is where I nearly broke my toe.
Instead, my foot was sliced open,
adding to my woe.
We all have scars upon our skin
that tell the stories of our life.
Of lessons that we truly learned
and troubles that always ran rife.
