Scars like you, are beautiful

Scars are beautiful.
No matter how many there are or how bad they are.
They're beautiful.
Just like your soul, darling.
Don't let anyone dull that shine of yours, the little bit you're holding onto.
Don't let those dirty looks cling onto you, just throw them right back.
And to any girl who needs to hear it: you are wanted, you are valid, you are beautiful, you matter
And to any boy who needs to hear it: you too are wanted, valid, beautiful, you too matter.
Scars are beautiful, we should wear them proudly. Not be ashamed for falling in a hole we didn't see was there.
Your arms are marked with tiger stripes as are your legs and your ribs and breasts.
As are your thighs, and your feet and your torso.
Scars are beautiful, and they visibly prove you're a soldier.
And we can't be called soldiers without putting up a fight.
So keep on marching soldiers, Keep on fighting.
Stop denying your strength
Stop defying the war.
Let it go through, because the longer you hold back the harder it will be.
Scars are beautiful just like you and me.
-Kay.
