My skin is tattered and torn, and my body feels nothing but warn, though with my eyelids shut I feel every scar, and my eyes are opened only to remember the pain caused by all my bruises, I now no longer look down at the shadows behind my unforgiving hands but at the needle and thread that I will use to repair my torn skin.
I am strong enough now to forget my future, and remember to embrace my past only to create my present
