Pain, Scars, Love - Poem by adam reed

pain heals with time
scars come with pain
love can heal a scar
still it takes time to attain

some scars cant heal
but we can learn to cope
and if you have love
there is always hope

you can try and bury a scar
but it's like putting make up over wrinkles
hiding it can only go so far
the scar prickles and tingles

hiding gets you nowhere
in pain and in love
dont hide, even if your scared
just remember the info above

    Nice poem. This reads like a great country music lyric to me. The third stanza really pulls the piece together. I hope you put this to music! (Report) Reply

    Simple logical path through this field of thought. If only reality was as easy. (Report) Reply
