Scarred


i am a seashell
one among many
i have cuts in my shell
wounds in my skin 
because
i was tossed
to and fro
by the waves
and the winds
of life's oceans
calloused by 
the rough sands
i am complicated
mysterious 
yet
fascinating
inevitable change
comes
but the marks
remain
my uniqueness
stands out
i am
aesthetically
scarred

  2. I guess each of us is a sea shell of sorts. We all carry those scars, hopefully indicative of growth, evolution and progress.

  3. The sea can be rough but it nurtures as well, excellent.

  5. Nice to meet you~
    Yes, we all have been tortured and caressed by life(the sea). Yet our shells(souls) remain intact, hopefully :D

  7. The ocean does cause a lot of change and tossing and turning in the sand would change anything while we are like the shell tossed around in our everyday lives, changing each day through the sands of time.

    This was a great poem and thanks so much for playing with us for this weeks Theme Thursday. Hope to see you next week.

    God bless.

  8. I enjoy your poetry. Seashells are interesting, you always wonder about their story. Stop by my blog and read my poems, "One More Dance" and "Snow Angels".

  14. True message. It hints at the unseen and tender mystery inside each of us, without saying so. Well done.
