The science of scars

The wounds we get
from falling down
skin and flesh torn
pain will be obscene
maybe not living, not feeling
seemed more welcoming
scars will be in place
while it may fade but never be erased

It will itch as it heals
and there’s nothing you can do
helpless against a constant annoyance
but it will form calluses
additional layer of protection
so you’ll no longer be as affected
from the same abrasion
trust me you’ll be tougher after this

One day you’ll be okay
you won’t be hurt anymore
but you will still remember
how terrible you had felt then
and avoid, in fear of the same
but try not to forget
that sometimes the events leading up
and some lessons you’d learnt after
are worth a little boo boo
