I Still Carry The Scars (1)

Yeah

I confess

I still carry  the scars

How’s that for honesty?

It’s not easy to admit

anything

Age has certainly got a lot

to answer for

Horror stories of my past

are thankfully shrouded

in the mists of youth

in the land of

“Did I really DO that

Didi I really SAY that?

We all have skeletons in our closets

some of us have  graveyards

It’s only sane to conclude

that

we all bear some scars.

No matter how fine

feather-tipped

lip brush kissed

a scar is a scar.

We are all in this healing process

together

some of us need

deep strength healing

to erase the pains of life

to ease the trials of our ancestral lives

Physical scars heal over a matter of time

Mental scars

Spiritual scars

take

a

wee

bit

longer.
