Constellation of Scars

What if scars were stars?
Lined them up, and what would you see?
A constellation of mars
Or something more becoming?

Every mark is a memory
Every mark tells a story
Overcome your history
And find yourself new glory

Line up the scars
See the picture they hold
If you make them as stars
And the new message they’ve told

Maybe the might of Draco
Or the kindness of Ursa
Hold justice like Virgo
Or bravery like Auriga

Whatever mark is made there on your skin
Give a chance for a new story to begin
Paint a picture, give it a tale.
Perhaps, its Orion defeating a whale?

Or perhaps just cover with beauty aglow
Stars shine well enough alone
Whatever the story and it’s objective
I hope you find new perspective

Scars can be stars if you give them the chance
And a new look on life, they can enhance
So instead of just marring and reminders of trials
Help them to shine and bring the world smiles
