battle scar

no scar, perfect skin

that's the ideal

no war, perfect living

but is that real?

we want to be perfect

porcelain face and body

not a single defect

ha, if only.

but stretch marks tell

all our stories of

growing pain hell

or a new life born from love

from washing clothes

dry hands cry

others will fold

what they wrung dry

battle scars show

the wars we have won

big or small, they glow

bright for our loved ones
