Everytime I look down
Or wear shorts just a little too short
I see scars on my legs
Scars that were made by me

I can never escape my past
No matter how long it’s been
Because I’ve left permanent marks
Placed onto my body

I try to focus on the present
But it’s hard to not look down
To not see what I’ve done
It feels wrong to ignore them

My body seems to be calling out
Asking me to forgive it
To never hurt it again
But when I promise, I’m not believed

Scars left on my body
Scars left on my mind
Scars that follow me everywhere
Scars that I can never escape
