The Scars to Prove It

The Scars to Prove It

I was found on the pavement covered in blood.

My bike was mangled five feet away from me.

The car had a huge crack in the windshield.

Thanks to my skull.

I've suffered through a lot of injuries.

I've got the scars to prove it.

Scars = Self-compassion always repurposes suffering.

My suffering taught me compassion.

For others and my self.

My suffering gave me my purpose.

To alleviate the suffering of others.

And to repurpose the suffering of others.

Suffering can be transformed into LOVE.

Listening, Observing, Verbalizing, Empathizing.

I've got the scars to prove it.
