The Thought Doesn't Count

You see, there was this girl on the bus
Dark skin, curly hair. Elementary age girl
Wiggling in her seat, uncomfortable in her own skin
I know because I battle the same war

All over her hands. 
Scratch marks and cigarette burns.
She tries to cover them with her left hand
Black hoodie, 
Mourning soul

I should have told her she was beautiful
I should have told her God loves her
I should have told her her scars are beautiful

But I didn't

It's the thought that counts right?
Well no it doesn't count at all

Being brave is a lot tougher than it looks.
God's love is much too great and amazing,
that how dare I keep my mouth shut.

But I'm learning
And I won't be quiet anymore

And you shouldn't be either.

With Love & Grace- Diana
