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.
