Scars

Inhale, exhale

droopy eyes as evidence 

of last night’s failures

Inhale, exhale

smudged glasses resulting

from an unwillingness to see clearly

Inhale, exhale

blemished canvases because of

refusal to be wiped clean

Inhale, exhale

untied shoelaces because

who gives a fuck

Let the imperfections

become who you are

Let the messy tresses, chipped nail polish, 

unshaven legs

show what you can’t say out loud

Inhale, exhale

we all have scars
