Memento mori

We’re not calling them ‘scars’ anymore. They are
a memorial to my many misadventures,
a memento of misguided madness,
a souvenir of suicidal slumbers,
a relic from rock bottom:
a shrine to survival.

    This is very poetic and sounds wonderful, and what a great gesture to search all the reasons for theses scars in your person. May be just everything together did not work out and perhaps just everything can workout better in 2018!!! Great poetry!


Tell us what you really think. We don't bite. Ok, most of us don't bite.
