Battle Scars

You’re scared of your battle scars fading

Because they’re a memory of what you have survived

You feel that they’re an anchor

Keeping you alive

While on the inside you are warring

A long, hard, silent fight

In which your mind throws flaws like arrows

Through the eternal night.


Instead of relying on your scars to keep you alive

Let me be a lantern, I’ll be your light

I’ll help expel the darkness

Within your war-torn mind

You are my best friend

And I’ll be here for you ’til the very end.
