Hope Debuted

Bruises and Scars

are you who you were
are you your bruises and scars
is that who you are

or are you each day renewed
your past relieved, hope debuted

    Kurt’s poem is a magical elixir. One second, I was the ramshackle barn in the picture. The next, I was smiling. All it took was 27 words. Thanks, Kurt :)
