Blemishes

Moles:
Tell-tale signs
of sun-kissed skin

Scars:
Jagged lines
of life lived

Acne:
Pimply cysts
causing teenage angst

Birthmarks:
Unique patterns
making us individual

    Loved how you have given life to each of these features. The scars have a story to tell and the birth marks are probably the most cherished one.
