Survivors

Scars…

Upon our flesh

Sting our lips

Haunt our minds

Invade our veins

Reminders of…

The times we’ve lived

Of lessons learned

Dreams forgotten

Victories won and problems conquered

Scars…

Have brought us here

Shaped who we are

Made us stronger

Renamed us

…Survivors…

  1. Jessica – as with all your poems, so poignant.

    Question: do you take the photos first, then write your interpretation / inspiration around it? Or if not, how do you find images that so perfectly match your words?

Thanks for stopping by!
