Unfading Scars Poem by Silentpoet Grl

Unfading Scars

Rating: 4.9

shame I can not hide
ugliness clearly displayed
shattered life never mended
brokenness written upon flesh
ashamed of unfading scars
tormented battle rages in my mind
screaming- just lay down the knife
weakness, failing again
as another scar is traced
bottled up tears releasing
washing over crimson wrists
desperate wishes to end this
a battle painfully lost,
and already started again
as another cut spills more shame.

One of the most painful poems I've ever read. The world needs this kind of brutal honesty from those brave enough to record it and share it. Thank you SPG.

Well captured emotions in this sad poem, yes those scars are the sign of your victory, they are there because you went through hardships...understand 'YOU WENT THROUGH IT', so you conquered it, it didnt kill you my friend..all the best.

Some scars will never heal, some can be covered, but...some will be healed only with time and patience....blessings, little one.

An ugly topic beautifully written. The conflict in emotions resolved in words, because these words touch us the readers. We all have scars, whether visible or hidden. The wounds heal but the marks remain. Each healed scar must remind us that we have won that particular battle. Now we all must resolve to win the war!
