To all the people
who’ve left me scars,

Thank you for the shyness
that makes me stand apart.
I never needed to fit in
by ripping out my heart.

Thank you for the sadness
that lingers all the while.
It makes all the more precious
those moments when I smile.

Thank you for the fear
that often gives me pause
and makes me reexamine
my actions for just cause.

Without these I would not be
the man I am today.
