Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Life's lessons are tough but they make us stronger, better, and wiser, IF we've learned them well. Some need repeating until we have learned the lesson being taught.

"Scars Are Stars"

When you feel disheartened and dismayed,
Remember other costs you've already paid,
Not to relive previous battle grounds,
But to remind you of the winning rounds,
Where you made it through, stronger than before,
And you will again, make it to the shore.

Allow your scars to be testimonies from your past,
That you have strength enduring and made to last,
Through all the storms and bumpy roads ahead
Focus on accomplishments, minimising dread.

We do not learn lessons for just ourselves alone,
But to help others, showing we have grown.
In life there are many lessons that must be learned,
Teaching us important things that only can be earned.

Wear your scars like badges, for strength from them to borrow.
Remember where you've been to look forward to tomorrow.
For all the lessons learned, you've earned your battle scars,
And in your book of life, they are your golden stars!
