Work of Art

everyday

is a fight

a struggle

a contest

testing your mettle

your resolve

your tenacity

against yourself

you

have to punch

and kick

and scratch

and claw

towards a better tomorrow

never forgetting

the past

or the present

those scars

are marks of passion

of the skinny years

just before you touched the fat

paint them shades of gold

and share them

as you would a tattoo

or your favorite

work of art
