"Run away" they say

This is a story of my past
Of when i was just an ignorant fool
When I wandered with no focus
Am not a stranger to the dark
I've been bruised and deformed
“Hide away” they say
No! run away we mean
No one will love you as you are

I've learned to be ashamed
Of all my scars and pain
Of my broken image
Shattered like a mirror on the wall
Like a painting that is cracked
I've lost my worth and value
I let my pain build and teach me

I won't let them break me down to dust
I won't let their words shape me
I won't let their perception decieve me
I won't let them confine me

I know who I want to be
I know that there is a place for me
I know I deserve love
For I am glorious inspite of my scar
And there is nothing am not worthy of
I am a light and a star
If I run, it will be to my dream
And not away from it
If I run I will be a fool
