Beauty Marks 💕

As women we go through so much

Sometimes the pain runs deeper than the ocean

I’ve kept things inside me that’s been bottled up for years

With no other choice but to move forward and fight back tears

Cuts and bruises that have followed me for a lifetime

Prepping myself in the mirror “keep moving forward baby, just let your light shine”

I don’t call them scars anymore

I call them beauty marks

They’ve made me who I am

They are my pain and my peace

My war wounds

My best attire

Behind every one of them is a story of survival, many of them will go untold

They are reminders that I failed but today I have success stories

I was broken but not destroyed

I cried but wiped away many tears

I surrendered and rose again

My beauty marks are stunning, they hold so much strength

They are the stories of my life

Reminders that I wasn’t given a choice

But I got up…worked hard…failed…stood back up…faced it again…failed again…stood back up && REPEATED

Evidence that I have lived.

See you at the top boo!
