Understanding - May 15, 2010


What splendid warmth may be found inside
A heart that's scarred from pain
Which hold's the knowledge of a past that's died
Leaving understanding to remain

Each scar is an aching remnant of painful blows
Which have cut the heart like a knife
Inflicted there by the hand of woe
Held fast by grief and strife

There are hearts you find who heal and gain
A strength beyond belief
Whose warmth can comfort those in pain
Through understanding bring relief

Well done my new friend. It is often hard to let go of that grief and pain to start the healing process, and you are right it takes an inner strength to do that....only then can we find relief
