The Scarlet Scar

Scars

As she looks down her hand

she can see it.

A line,a bruise,a cut,a scar

whatever it may be it’s there.

tears swell up in her eyes

she dares to touch it

her small fragile fingers touch the marks

they’re deeper than she thinks

reality hits her as she falters to get up

she gasps for air but in vain

using all her strength she screams

a scream which she herself couldn’t hear

as her head is about to hit the ground in defeat

her eyes open

it was just a dream

she looks down her hand again

a bright scarlet scar stares back at her

a scar which didn’t take her life

but taught her a lesson

a lesson she’ll remember

throughout her precious life
