Every scar has a story
INDEED every scar carries its own meaning. It explains the road travelled, tells the kind of hurdles that have been overcome and paints a picture of how much of a fighter you have become.
Who can deny the fact that every scar has a story? Let him or her come and tell me in the face. For, young as I am, there's more on my scars than in my journal. My journal depends on me to write a story. But my scar is constantly singing my braveness.
My scar keeps telling me to fight on for what I believe in. Inspired by the last heroes of the past, I am allowing this scar to preach on; until, the gospel of faith in oneself and perseverance is appreciated by all young people. Do you believe, now; that every scar has a story?
