growing up

after a fall

i was told

to let the wounds


that the best

way for their


was their solitude.

that scars could come

but most would


and i would be better.

it is a weird thing.

for i am all grown now.

and i


and try

and try

let the wounds be.

and it just doesn’t seem to work anymore
