    Scars on my body
    Scars on my mind
    Amazing how a single experience can change one's outlook
    And the memories constantly replay every time we look at our scars
    The reactions to our memories determine our ability to grow

    The strong rise
    Once seeing only the beauty on the shell
    Are forced to draw out the beauty from within
    And claim an invisible prize
    Whether it be soul personality or character
    Making yourself still viable in this world
    Based on your inner features
    Which after all, are the true essences of beauty

    The weak fall
    Unable to comprehend why
    Why it had to happen to me
    Why must I be scarred
    Why must I now join the ugly
    Too shallow for rehab
    Falling in a never ending pit of depression
    Unable to grasp at the positives in life
    Of life, of having life and being able to live

    I want to be strong
    To be able to understand
    That life is about living it
    Not about dwelling on it
    Dwelling about things past
    About experiences not so nice
    And the scars they left
    I want to be able to adapt to the situation
    And move on

    When the unexpected happens and we do get knocked off our feet, we may be down, but not necesarily out. We are stronger than we know. Much strength in your words poet.

    Key-L Welcome!!!
    I can so relate to this write.
    I remember a time when I was tryn'
    to pick myself up And Move On
    Sometimes it easier said than
    done. The good thing is that
    time heals ALL scars. So you
    hang in there and your next
    piece can be titled
    "Keep it Moving"
    Very nice flo:)


    Much Luv

    Very Nice--I like the questioning approach--it brings the reader into the poem, looking for an answer--nice flow--Amun-Ra
