Did you hear what was being said? Or where or how or why? Did you pick a side to ignite a fire that would blow

wild simply because you thought you could change a game or be motivational for a second?

Only to realize that you threw stones at the wrong soul and opened up an already sealed lid and in the process

forced out threads from already stitched wounds because you thought it was taking too long to heal and threads aren’t meant

to last in wounds that have been stitched?
Well, that’s the problem. You don’t have to play a part that isn’t meant for you. If you’re not skilled,

then you have no business with addressing certain issues or dressing wounds— because if you were skilled, you’d know everyone bleeds but we all

bleed differently just as everyone heals but we all

heal differently at different times, places and stages. There is no fixed rule when it comes to healing: we ain’t working with

anyone’s time or assumption. We heal when there is no burning sensation beneath the wounds we bear.

We heal when our wounds have been replaced with skin.

This is a beautiful poem and so true. Healing is a journey and each person’s journey is different.

Fiorella Madsen

what a beautiful poem about healing our souls. Great work!

Dalene Ekirapa

Everyone heals at different rates and times but it all comes from our decision to find joy in the situation and not hide in the pain. As well, mindfulness has to kick in especially if addressing someone going through pain.


This is so beautiful! We all heal in our own time and it is up to us to do it! <3

Sonja Hoff

Beautiful. Healing is so important and definitely happens on its own time.

Liz Bayardelle

As always, such beautiful words! You really are a fantastic writer and it’s a pleasure to read your work.

Whitney Kutch

Beautiful job! I love your prose here and the message is so important <3

Tochukwu Precious Eze

Lovely words. Very important message. We all take it differently on healing part and it depends on time we take to heal.


So very true, there is no timescale we all heal differently no two people are the same

Lori Bosworth

It’s so important to listen to others and not judge prematurely. I agree: each of us heals at our own pace.


I agree, we all heal differently and we shouldn’t force people to ‘heal immediately’ as it takes time and tons of work to do. Thanks for the inspiring post!

David Elliott

This is true. We shouldn’t expect anyone else’s healing time to be our own. And we shouldn’t measure anyone else’s progress healing against our own. Everyone has their own rate of time.


totally agree, this is so true, you heal on your time and nobody can tell when regardless of how deep or how little the pain could be.


Beautiful poem. I have to agree, until the wounds no longer burn, we are not fully healed
