Number 23
June 4th, 2009


Old fractures in ourselves
That fail to mend
Things broken so deep and now
Come surfacing

We need time for working
On things still hurting
Time to give time to our tears
And heal... feel

See how we keep old wounds alive
Keep them near
We guard them like treasures
Hold so dear

We need time for seeking
Eyes full and weeping
Time to give time to our fears
And heal... feel

Our skin, our bones
Somehow find a way
To overcome what hurt was done
Stronger in their change
