Behind this pretty face,

Lays the scars that tears me apart,

Taunts my soul and buries me flat.

You really thought this 'pretty face'

Didn't go through hardship?

Each scar engraved on my skin

tells stories of my dire truth,

The truth of every chapter explains

how I was knocked to the curb one too many times.

My scars are not to be seen by any being,

Because, you'd only get blind by every deep line.
