Scars & Sparkles (poem)

I'm covered in scars...
From injuries over the years.
A sliver in my leg
A scratch that didn't heal correctly
An accident that cut my eyebrow

But today i'm also covered in sparkles.
Sparkles that illuminate my skin.
Sparkles that show a joy found in all my scars.

Because sparkles are happy.
I've survived all my injuries, all my scars.
Both inside and out.

So today I'm wearing scars and sparkles.

Showing who I am.
