Life leaves its mark

Experiences form us
Travels deepen us
Rest raises us
Joy elevates us

Life leaves its mark
The good and the bad
Live leaves its mark
For them both I am glad

Loves expand us
Families lift us
Pains strengthen us
Hurts build us

Life leaves its mark
The good and the bad
Live leaves its mark
For them both I am glad

Fears bore into us
Friends heighten us
Life marks us
Life makes us

Life leaves its mark
The good and the bad
Live leaves its mark
For them both I am glad

Our experiences are our tatoos -- and depending how we embrace them, some are ugly, some are interesting, some are beautiful.

The repetition makes a strong poem all the stronger ... lovely.
