The point of scars is that they remind you of the past. The moments of sadness you thought are always there.” But there’s more to these goddamn scars. They’re a mystery hidden far away like the stars. It’s the truth you don’t see with the naked eye, oblivious to the workings of the world, a lie. But listen to me, there is more to this mark, it also talks about fighting, resilience, and your unstoppable power.”
