Love me

Let me show you how I love

Though different from others

I feel way too strong

And hurt much too easily

Will you stay when I push you away

Or leave because it’s easier

Someone like myself has always been difficult to love

Will you see my scars as warrior stripes

Each line a sign of surviving

It matters to me what you think

I’m damaged, as you can see

You can’t fix me, you can just love me

Just as I am
