#Flawless

Tell me

why are you here all alone?

Here in the corner

with a pill bottle

and much more Advil

than you'll ever need

I'm so sorry

that no one ever told you

the

mirror

lies.

The scars on your wrist

the bruises left by daddy's fist

the ribs that see the light of day

Darling, you mustn't live this way

those are the things that hold no power

I watch you grow stronger

with every passing hour

Who are you

(in your own terms)?

You are a defender of the weak

a champion for your brothers and sisters

a passionate soul

burning continuously

That is why the world tries

to silence you -

You

are

flawless.
