Scars and LoveSome things exist deeper within us than we know.
The scars...scars upon scars
they carve a voidful cavern,
interlaced with barriers that trigger in an automatic way.
We loathe the damage they create but feel powerless to stop them.
We watch helplessly as they chase away threats to our vulnerability.
We pray for the will to overcome them or some hero to save the day.
A hero who has their own fears to conquer, we all do.
And yet within these murky depths resides love.
A love that reaches out and connects, knows no discrimination.
Persists in the face of all assaults,
sees value where the scars assert it missing.
This love is unending, pure, and never lets go.
We are not dark or light but both.
Within this lies our tragedy, when we exist as our own greatest foil.
But also our greatest beauty.
Redemption is always but a heartbeat away,
...if we could just learn to get out of our own way.
