Scars Mean Nothing

Scars Mean Nothing

A Poem by LyLy
"

For the broken, I offer you this. You can recover from cutting, from addiction, and let nothing stop you.

"

With the words "love" and "free"

I will show you who I can be

With the words "blind" and "see"

I let the blood flow easily


Scarred words of "Hate" and "pain"

I'll tell you my stories of standing in the rain

Faded scars of years ago

I still haven't learned to say "no"

I wish I could you go

I never learned when to say "no"


Words writing on me

I bet you'll be waiting to see

The words bleeding on me

If I can break away and be free

Can I be me?


Can I be strong like a tree?

Bet I'm free

You can bet I'm me

But don't bet on the races

Because lines can break

Wonder how much I'll take?

But really I'm done

I've learned I never won


But what I took from the races was

You can never fall too far

Life isn't a falling star

When you see me again I'll be me


I'll win that race

Because races aren't on speed

They're based on who has been freed

Based on who's got the right seed


Well guess what, I'm a mutt

Proud to be screwed up

Legally fucked up

Legally insane

I don't want any kind of fame

I'm me


I'm gonna be free

I've wrote words into my heart

But I guess that's a start

I can't fight how much I love you

I just wish I could say it too


I fight myself as a dying breed

Without much to give in the way of seed

But it looks to me

Like I'm finally me


I'm me

I'm free

I'm who I wanna be

I'm who I wanna see


I'm me

I'm free

And I'm who I wanna be.
