Life is an Arrow
Perfect in the eyes of others;
Flawed in the eyes of the mirror.
I have stretch marks that show I have lived and grown.
I have scars that show I’ve fallen and gotten back up.
I have a smile that comes from pure happiness;
Or to hide my tears.
I am a listening ear;
Because I know what it feels like to not be heard.
I am a friend;
Because I know what it feels like to not have any.
I tell the truth;
Because I know what it feels like to be lied to.
Life is an arrow.
Pull me back as much as you want because I know
I will be shot into something beautiful.
I know what it feels like to love,
And be alone.
Because of this I am stronger than ever before.
Because of this,
I am flawless.

Thank you very much! And just the topic itself inspired me. I always used to be so ashamed of my stretch marks but within time I started to embrace it. Hence my tattoo.
