A Broken Heart (Sad) - Poem by Poet of the River

We are all hurt in life.
They say that pain lessons over time,
but that pain never truly fades.
We simple cover it in scar tissue to help dull the pain.
but it never truly goes away.

    true, , , , , , , pain inflicted on us by others never disappear completely.......... but brooding over it can kill us psychologically. in my experience, , , , , , , , , , in prayer and through a relationship with God we can get healed.

    Pain is a memory that scabs over with time, yet when you tear the scab again you bleed all over. (Report)Reply
