The journey of this life has left scars,
embedded deeply within my being.
become the spider-like web of construction.
Mirrored cracks & creases,
are the consistent reminders that I lived.
I wear my battle-wounds PROUDLY,
for they’re the trophies of life continuing &
As I Am,
exhibiting the freckles of time,
a reminder of the existence I bare.
I breathe & live again.
