I have a scar on my hand that has two pale skin aberrations, distinctly round and pink. I’d like to think that I got it from something more adventurous like a snake bite, but alas, it is only a souvenir of charaterisitc clumsiness. I managed somehow to injure myself on a bicycle, 5 years ago.

I look at this almost every day, noticeable, yet now unnoticeable as it becomes a part of my skin and its unique idendity. But it’s there — ugly and defacing. Does time really heal all wounds? What a lie it is!

It takes the sting out;
maybe gives you the luxury of forgetting the urgency and pain,
but the tell-tale reminders all remain.

Time does not heal all wounds.

Only healing heals all wounds.
