Scars

.

“Hate

leaves

ugly scars,

love

leaves

beautiful

ones.”

.

~Mignon McLaughlin

The grotesque face permanently disfigured

with a frown, the gnarled lip always contorted

into a snarl, the fist that is so clenched that

wounds never heal to become  scars,

they are the plight of the ones who hate.

Love is no pain, only a smile, a twinkle in the eye,

an open hand ready to help, the gentle reminders

of loves come and gone, a love that is now and forever

a gentle impression on ones heart.

Love is being covered with invisible scars.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
