Sadness pours out of her
But she tries to be strong
For the sake of loved ones
This girl, fifteen years young
Won’t shed a tear,
Won’t show she’s broken
But the hidden scars remain;
A sign of the pain
She endures

    Those hidden scars are the really tough ones. I was this girl at fifteen. Sometimes I’m still this girl, now at 32.

    Yep! Scars at 15 are scars for life. Well, IMHO. Great writing!

    Too young to have such scars, but a warrior at heart. Great take on the prompt!
