"I babysat this six year old, and I was wearing shorts today..
and my scars were showing, I guess. He poked them and he said, "I know how those got there." I replied, "How?" He looked at me with a straight face and he said, 'I've seen them before. My big sister had them, and she said mean people put them on your body when they weren't nice to you, because when people are mean to you, you end up being mean to yourself. My big sister went away. I don't know where she went. Mommy said she's on a happy vacation somewhere, because she was too sad here. I miss her. Don't go on a vacation, please.'"
We're all defected in some way.
Caused by people.
Caused by dreams.
Caused by drama.
Caused by trauma.
Caused by chance.
Caused by wounds of all kinds.
The deep ones.
The shallow ones.
The gaping ones.
The narrow ones.
The fatal ones.
The poisoned ones.
The minor ones.
Caused by weapons of all kinds.
Everyone is defected by scars.
But these scars are our stripes: identifying us as strong beings. Stating who we are.
For you're a tiger, and you've earned your goddamm stripes.
Every single day, you are graduating from the class, 'you made it.'
My body is a canvas, And I paint a tragic tale. You are not my hero, I am trapped in Hell. A razor is my paintbrush, and every artist needs a muse. My only inspiration is Every time I'm used. I swear I know I need help, but I don't want to stop. They tell me it's a bad habit, but I feel like it's not. No, it hasn't killed me yet, so who's to say it will? It leaves me numb and bitter, So I don't need your pills. The blood is but a setback, I think I'll be okay. We both know you can't save me. You never tried to anyway. Oh, it's no big secret, ask me, if you'd like. I'll show you a scar or two, And try to take some pride. Every scar stands for, another day that I survived. Because at least, when I'm bleeding I'm certain I'm alive. Console me with your words, Such pretty, perfect lies. I don't need you next to me, I'm telling you, I'm fine. My razor is my best friend, It know secrets I dare not speak. And you are nothing to me, Just another face on the street. I could replace you in a second, With someone else who wears a mask, Because we all wear them, We cover up our pasts.
