Scrapes

Once the wound is recognized,

Bleeding may be stopped.

Bandages are temporary.

Stiches attempt closure.

Surgery’s outcome could fail.

The magic of the clot

Is never a guarantee

Since cuts, scrapes, and lacerations

Run rampant inside and outside

Body, skin, and heart

Wounds aren’t subjective.

This is a misinterpretation of pain.

Wounds are inclusive to all

Bodies, skin, and hearts.

Everyone has had one.

Everyone one will experience one.

Healing cannot begin

Until sutured by compassion

Instead of ruptured

By presumptuous accusations
