Self Perception

The Man walks through his life terrified that his scars may show. 
The battles that he's fought are all in his mind but the scars are there just the same. 
Constant thoughts of his mistakes and demons he's not able to put down. 
Constant fear that he's the only one left to battle what is beneath his own surface. 
Shame from the struggle that is before and behind him. 
Shame from the tears that stain his face. 
If only he had known that he is not alone. 
If only he could see his struggles have made him the man that others love.

Strongly put and greatly moving. Would you consider breaking the long lines apart? I don't think you would lose any of the desired impact. Excellent last line.
