    And some you can. I think scars are examples of

    a life lived hard. And I won't apologize for them.

    The internal ones will take much longer to heal,

    Sometimes all it takes is one little crack

    inside that becomes bigger until your whole heart is shattered and noone can fix it . Only so many broken promises until you can't see the light of a new day from your eyes . So many words that were broken or lies told that makes you not want to listen anymore I have lost...

    My scars are expressed through my ink work.

    ... there is no upside-down frown on me.

    I've been in this school

    where all the rich kids go. I don't consider myself rich but I was just thankful that my mom could afford to send me there. I wasn't called the typical rich kid because I would always walk to school while my classmates would arrive in nice, shiny cars. I'm in college now and...

    I hate myself. I hate my temptation.

    I hate how I allow myself to be so fragile. I hate how I let people take advantage of me. I hate how everyone think that I'm this great person who's perfect and I'm not. I hate how I break so easily. I hated every time I let myself cry. I hate how I always messed up and how...

    Too Many

    As months go by I find I have more scars than I could imagine. As time go on new fears, anxieties and doubts all surface from within. Scars festering beneath my skin. Only I know they exist and only I can feel their irritation and pain.

    When you realize that your definition of love

    is not that. When you realize that people would rather ignore you than to deal with all the mess and weed through the choas to create peace. I have suffered throughout this war I never wanted to participate in and if I'm to die here then so be it. No one cares about right and...

    I feel that for someone like me

    who had such a traumatic childhood as a result of my dysfunctional family of origin (i.e., both my mother and father) it is more difficult to accept the cards you have been dealt in this part of life. I often wonder if I would have had a shot at a healthy being and life if only...

    As a child I had red hair

    and freckles, and I was obnoxiously taller than the other girls at a stage. I also didn't like to wear dresses and try to impress the boys. I suppose that made me a target and I was bullied, sometimes even by my supposed friends. I cried when I got home and I crawled deeper into...

    They are from the wounds

    that take the longest to heal... and they oftentimes don't heal completely.

    From an early age I noticed something wasn't

    right with me. I was bullied at school and I guess I looked different to the other kids. My bullying went on for a few years and in that time I admit I did try and end it all with pills. I was so scared and lonely. In my last year of school my bullies gave me a choice either...
