One scar


Three scars


Five scars


Seven scars


In this war

Against myself

I cannot win

My story lies upon my shelf

Most of these scars are in my head

Until one day

I turn up dead



You are such a wonderful writer. I don't know exactly what you're going through, but I feel like I can relate. In my opinion, every scar tells a story. Scars mean that you've survived. I have depression, PTSD, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. I know that it's hard. And I know that people just don't understand. And unfortunately they never will. Writing and art in general are great ways to escape reality and it can also help to ease the pain. I put all of my emotions into my poetry and music and I suggest that you do the same. It's a great release. Keep your head up. You're perfect in your own way. Screw other people. Just keep writing and doing your thing. Stay strong. -Caity
