The Mark

broken

 

Scarred.

Withered,

defective,

broken, battered –

but boldly blooming.

Consider each fracture

proof you are alive;

count each blossom

audacious

beauty

mark.

Seeing Double

You were born to misfortune,

twin to trouble,

ruled by Fate to

suffer double.

Now your Faith is

growing bold;

doubly worth

its weight in gold.
