Beautiful Scars

Between these beautiful scars
There is a mark on my heart like a shooting arrow in the dark
There is hope deep inside and in time
A life waiting to be discovered and recovered

Taken years ago when I was away from home.
The scars will stay
The memories will remain
One day I will be free from the pain

My heart will heal
My body will repair
My hope will not turn into despair
Life isn’t fair
As we turn into thin air
The nightmare will float away, one day

Somewhere between the scars there is person waiting to free
From the past
Trying to breath the clean air into my body
To purify the contaminated cells
To feel complete, not hollow
One day the past will not follow
