The One with the Scars
by Evie

I’m the happy one who writes dark poems. 

I’m the hyper, crazy one who breaks down at night. 

I’m the one who tries to be selfless, but is more selfish than anyone else. 

I’m the one against bullying, but beats up herself. 

I’m the girl that everyone looks at, but never sees. 

I’m the softball player that nobody wants. 

the girl who “has such a pretty face” but not the body. 

I will continue to be, and I am, the girl with the scars on her wrist 

and the hole in her stomach. 

but maybe she is happy for once. maybe she has finally come to discover 

that she is her weakest link… so if she is weak, so are her thoughts… 

maybe if she is strong, her thoughts will be, too. 

that light is finally being shown. despite her pain and suffering. 

she is okay.
