Do Not Hide

Do not hide
your scars
for they are
trophies. 

They are reminders
of battles fought
and of wars survived.

They are souvenirs
of failed attempts
and proof of your strength. 

They hold memories
of times of lost hope
and your journey of self discovery. 

They showcase 
your worth and
how you deserve to be treated.

Sweet angel,
do not hide 
your scars;
for their alternative 
is far worse.
