Not All

Not all scars show, not all wounds heal, sometimes you can’t always see the pain someone feels. – unknown

Not all the scars show
when they can be hidden

That you would ever know
is what’s to them forbidden

Not all wounds truly heal
for they keep coming back

Then it’s peace they steal
as the tears they track

For there are always times
you can’t see the pains

That from some other’s crimes
still in a heart remains

And what they do feel
they refuse to let show

It’s too hard to deal
with what other people know.

  1. There’s definetly alot of inner pain that people are afraid to show such of that of the heart and soul. They’re probably afraid to let it be shown because admitting to it outloud would make them truly feel its wrath. Excellent poem.

    1. That’s so very true. My teenaged daughter gave me that quote and, unfortunately, she has several friends who do/did cut themselves. We have talked about it between ourselves and I have also discussed it with several of them. i feel sorry for these teens today. so many of them are lost and in pain. Breaks my heart 😦 Thanks for the compliment too. Blessings…

    1. Several places actually: Google.com images, Bing.com images, dreamstime.com and photobucket.com are the ones that I can think of right off the top of my head. I do a lot of image surfing. Have to look through a lot too just to find a handful of ones worth keeping. Hope that helps 🙂
