Healing #AtoZchallenge

Please note that this blog is a work of fiction.


Break a bone,

They’ll set it.


Gash an arm,

They’ll sew it.


Break a heart?

Forget it. You’re forever changed.


Crumple your fender

They’ll undent it.


Crack a pane

They replace it.


Get left behind?

Forget it. You’re on your own.

Hmmm, this is my first poem.  It’s not done yet. I want to end on a more upbeat note but am having a difficult time finding that note. I think it must be possible for hearts to mend but there will always be a scar. And I’m not sure you’re always “on your own” but I think we do have to take responsibility for our healing even if we’ve been wronged….I’ll keep working on this–the poem and my pain.

  1. Scars are vague memories, and remind us of that saying: “The only way out, is through.” Each moment is a step through, even if it feels like a step backward. It still is a step through.

    I like your poem, and am glad to know that it is not finished.
