One’s Own Hero

Do not trip over my scars
Or fall into the trench that they make
Do not wander aimlessly and stomp on my heart
Though it is already bruised and battered
Often by my own words and self-deprecation
To be one’s own bully is simple
To be one’s own hero difficult
But life was not meant to be a breeze
We are living to learn
And saving ourselves is a great lesson
