Scarred Yet Strong

———

scarred and beaten down…

rusted to its

shadow core…

this essence of humanity…

despite its many mistakes…

still deserves the cooling salve

only given to those

who simply ask

for it…

And though fear

may still the tongue of some…

Others are pleased

with a simple dip..

within the

blue waters,

from which..

peace,

and all its kindness….

flows….
