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.
