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.
