He'd come back changed
    One might say he was broken
                                         He knew better
True he had his scars
                 And they covered him quite well
And perhaps he wasn't completely whole

But he was not broken

                              His scars were proof of that.
Scars, emotional or otherwise, are proof that a person survived. That they healed at least somewhat. They don't define a person or prevent them from moving on. They're a statement, they say yes I have felt pain, but I'm still here.
