Scars

You treat them
Yet they are permanent
You hide them
Yet they are permanent
You ignore them
Yet they are permanent
You hurt them
Yet they are permanent
You forget them
Yet they are permanent

You hate them

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
My friend has always been very insecure about herself, mainly because of her appearance, but also her ability. She is a very talented singer, but she doesn't realize how amazing she is just yet. She once told me that sometimes, tiny incidents that happen occasionally, tend to trigger a flush of bad memories. In her head, she would hear all the horrible things that her family and past 'friends' have said to her. This is how I got the idea of scars, not physical scars, but scars on the heart. However, when she was pouring her heart out to me, I could feel so much powerful emotion; her words and the way she expressed herself to me was beautiful, even if she was in pain. 'Scars' could indeed show a beautiful side to people.

I totally agree with you. We are afraid to be hurt again and try to hide our scars. It`s more difficult to heal the soul than the body, but scars (both physical and scars of the heart) are not something what is ugly or something what must make us hate ourselves and feel ashamed. The pure soul will always remain pure. The beauty of the body is only a the reflection of the beauty of the soul. Thank for sharing this wonderful poem and the story of you friend.
