What Hasn't Killed Me

June 10, 2021

They say what doesn't kill you makes you
stronger. They call me a survivor,
a champion, so strong and steel willed
and they lie.

They lie when they say I have grown,
I have learnt from my pain, for all I've grown is
Weary, and all I've learnt is suffering.

What hasn't killed me has left me in
Crutches, broken, an ugly mess covered
With a feeble mask of makeup and fake
Smiles to cover up my scars which
Hurt so bad and are anything but
Beautiful.
