It is a condition that’s genetic,
Beware of wounds that do not heal,
Avoid spices and sugar in every meal.
My wounds are deeper, doctor dear
All you see are scars up here
Life has taught me wounds heal faster,
If you make forgiving a little easier.
I have travelled this continent far and wide,
Touched its boundaries on every side,
Shared spirits with men and women,
Told them of wounds and sins forgiven.
But, doctor the wounds that don’t heal are,
Wounds of juvenile dreams gone sour,
Look how they insult experience and age,
As if they would never see dotage!
