A fitting representation of the quote as lions represent pride…

Time heals all wounds,

Or so they say,

Wounds create scars,

Reminders of where we have been,

Scars heal,

Tough,

Calloused,

Harder than before,

The wound becomes rigid,

Like our egos,

Our feelings,

Our pride,

The choice remains within us,

Suffer and atrophy,

Fall on your sword,

Or rebuild and strengthen,

Better than before,

Regardless of direction,

The scar remains,

A symbol of the past,

Where we once were,

A lesson learned,

How far we have come,

Or an emblem of agony,

A destination of pain,

Wallowing in self-pity

Becoming a martyr for defeat.

    • Thank you! It took me a while to put this one together. I had about half of it written but I needed to step back from it for some time. I came back to it after a few weeks and found the right words to complete it.

      I’m following your blog now!
