Eventually the wound starts to heal. The constant pain subsides. Hair grows back, but be careful when you touch that old wound. Every time your fingers grace that traumatized skin, you think of the pain, the loss. The physical damage heals, but the scars never completely fade away. Scars can be memories. Scars can be inside jokes that randomly abuse your consciousness. They can be a person, place or thing. You’ll never escape them. Embrace that tortured tissue. Feel how much tougher that part of you is. Remember your scars, love them. If you let the scars overcome you, you’re destined to become one.
