One's scars are not simply disfigurements,
They tell a vivid story written in blood and skin.
Why do people's icy stares never relent,
When this is pain they've never been in?

I know hope is there.
Because its the only reason why,
I held on when no one cared,
And didn't give up inside.

I want to break the surface,
Of the sorrow's hold.
I believe each life has a purpose.
So bring to life my soul.


I don't want to die,
That wasn't the reason this began.
All I desire is to survive,
And get out of this dark land.

I know hope is there.
Because its the only reason why,
I held on when no one cared,
And didn't give up inside.

I want to break the surface,
Of the sorrow's hold.
I believe each life has a purpose.
So bring to life my soul.


Some people are angels,
And some are monsters without disguise.
For a while I believed none were truly faithful,
Or wanted to comfort the tears you cry.

But I discovered if you look hard enough,
There are those who will,
Always give you their love.
Even when their own tears are spilled.

I know hope is there.
Because its the only reason why,
I held on when no one cared,
And didn't give up inside.

I want to break the surface,
Of the sorrow's hold.
I believe each life has a purpose.
So bring to life my soul.


Despite the scars I wear,
And the places that I've been.
I know there are those who care,
And will help me no matter where or when.

I know hope is there.
Because its the only reason why,
I held on when no one cared,
And didn't give up inside.

I want to break the surface,
Of the sorrow's hold.
I believe each life has a purpose.
So bring to life my soul.
I just wrote this and thought it was good enough to post. Please tell me how it made you feel and think!

This is very powerful and expressive.

I love it! (Albeit I sound like a broken record again.) It made me think of all the amazing people I know... You, Racheal, Gia, Nana... Others are supportive too, but those specifically I'd trust with my life.
