Every word I've permanently inked upon my body is the story of my life;
Painful, beautiful, chaotic, hurtful, regretful and filled with strife.
Each time I read the words to myself I'm reminded to be grateful,
for I have lived through what makes others weak and suicidal.
Are you in touch with every terrible aspect of who you are?
Can you see the reason that you have every irreversible scar?
I may be fucking crazy, I'm sure there are times I've been insane,
but I also know that I am not me without every memory of pain.
When I'm gone and my body is all that's left to show that I was here,
if you read the words that I placed upon myself, my story will be clear.

 

“God give me the strength to be what I was, and forgive me for what I am.”

“Luctor et emergo” (I struggle and I emerge)

“Amantes Sunt Amentes” (Lovers are lunatics)

“I love, I have loved, I will love”

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged”

“Greatest Ever”

“My suffering will disappear when I yield to the sadness”

“Begging for Forgiveness”

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”

“The best of us can find happiness in misery”

“Comedy and Tragedy”

“Smile now, cry later”
