Scar Tissue

Your scar is familiar to me

I’ve seen it’s rough edges

on my own once innocent skin.

You don’t have to hide from me

just because I have spotted your battle ground

before you’ve found mine.

I’d never look down at a fellow soldier

and you seem to forget

that you are no longer down in the trenches.

You are strong like tough scar tissue.
