I am the happy one, who likes to have fun.
I am the hyper, crazy one, who might randomly laugh.
I am the defiant one, who would never follow the rules.
I am the one with the scars and their secrets.
I am the messed up one, who thinks no one cares.
I am the helpless one, who can’t change her past.
I am the hurt one, but much more hurt on the inside.
I am the one with the scars, and their angry message is a reminder of my weakness.
I am the strong one, who is determined to survive.
I am the dreamer, who imagines a different life, imagines a time when pain was only a distant memory.
I am the childlike one, who remembers when there wasn't a care in the world.
I am the one with the scars, but they are not me,
And one day their meaning will be that I survived and overcame the past
