each and every

November 20, 2013 at 3:00 pm 18 comments

i look at each and every scar

and

recall when each and every one was made.

i can remember the frustration,

the reasons,

the sting.

still feel the anger,

hurt,

and

sadness

and

pain.

we all carry a mark of sorts –

some many

or

only a few.

some are out in the open for all the world to see

or

hidden deep far, far away from view.

whatever the case,

each and every scar is mine –

they belong to no one else.

i am not unique,

i am like each and every person –

human –

living –

dealing –

with the hand

i have been dealt.

    So much truth in this, yes, we all have scars, both visible and invisible. Nicely written.

    This is so true. I love the ending, only human, dealing with the hand we have been dealt. Beautifully put! Reminds me of a piece I started writing but haven’t managed to finish yet.

    Hmmm. Whatever the scar, it has a story, that I treasure. I can see you do too.
    Such a beautiful and touching poem.

    So well said. Every scar tells a story and yes some remained forever unseen yet those can be the deepest.
