Battle ScarsInstinct says to hide my scars,
That weakness musn't be shown;
Instinct says "Hide what you are,
"Because if they knew you'd be alone."
My heart argues that I'm not weak,
And those scars were each a battle fought;
That they are scars that I must keep,
As proof of triumph bought in blood.
Instinct says that pride is wrong,
And I must hide my shame;
My heart argues that I am strong,
And I'll hide them no more than my own name.
