I'M Gonna Write A Poem - Poem by Lauren Phillips

i'm gonna write a poem
not too long nor too short
it will be about beauty
about life and death and happiness
it will be about these war scars
the stories they tell and the battles fought and lost
it will be about the unseen beauty
with cardboard colored spots
painted cotton coming from the seams
the beauty is that it is different
not like any other
the life in it is the life it showed me i had
and the death is that this act has died
is over and done with
the happiness comes from the fact that the scars are the past
not the present
and not at all part of the future
