My scars by Nontokozo Sibanyoni

Nontokozo Sibanyoni | July 18th, 2017 | a poem a day challenge, poetry | 2 Comments


I am not afraid of my scars
I’m not afraid of their depth
How their mark seems to shape my life
I’m not afraid that they have become-
the root of my smiles

They are just scars, they don’t hurt anymore
just memoirs of wounds long healed
Just a beginning of my happy ending
So I cherish them as a foundation-
the foundation of my wisdom

I’m not afraid of my scars
Or the ones who put them there
I wear them proudly as a reminder
That I might have lost some battles-
but I will win the war.
