My emotional scars are my strength.

I am scarred
being bullied in childhood,
and teased in teenage years.

I am scarred
when judged,
and not understood.

I am scarred
when taken for granted,
deceived and betrayed.

I am scarred
because of failures and rejections.

I’ve been there and seen it all.
Yet, I stand strong like a rock
and shine like a diamond.

My scars do not and will never define me.
Yet, give me the strength to be the person I am.

“Emotional scars run deeper than the Nile and often lie lurking behind a smile.” ― Khang Kijarro Nguyen
