friends with scars

i have a friend, very far away, she suffered for being herself, it was unfair, and i love her so

she is wonderful, brilliant, and trying to make it every day, she shines like a diamond, a star in the sky

i have another friend, also far away, she suffered tyranny from outside, it was unfair, and i love her so

she is beautiful, a poet, carrying her scars with her every day, she shines like a diamond, the morning sun at the horizon

i have friends all over, each dealing with scars that none can see, it’s unfair, but i love them so

they fight, they scrape, they survive through the strength of will few can muster, they shine like diamonds, all in their own way

i see you down under, on sandy shores, under rainy skies across the ocean, in the frozen north, under the burning desert skies

in cities, in seclusion, all across this globe, you inspire me, allow me to stare down my own demons, all with teary eyes and a smile

thank you for sharing yourselves with a fool in the heart of texas, for seeing my scars and sharing your own, you are beautiful in every way
