These Scars (a poem)

These scars
tiny lines
major fissures
irreversible marks
traced and remembered
as evidence of
mistakes
failure
defeat
hidden in secret
under the cover of shame

These scars
not a sign of weakness
or a flaw of character
even broken places
are beautiful
they are fault lines
where the light of the universe
breaks in
and the effulgence of a magnificent life
shines out
the world forever transformed
by the radiance
of you
bshivers
