Scars ~ A Duet

November 29, 2014 at 6:01 pm 10 comments

I had the wonderful privilege and honor to ‘dance’ a duet with Bruised Belly. This subject weighs heavily on me, as I am certain it does for ‘all’ of us. We deal with it by hiding, wearing masks or whatever else is effective… Before she published it, she asked me if I felt the title “Scars” is alright. I told her that I really cannot think of another word which describes what they are – the thing about scars is that most people equate them with the physical marrings that is seen with the naked eye. The fact is we all have scars – and when some people are faced with these scars – whether they are on the skin or “emotional turmoil” – I believe they are challenged and this is where judgement pops in for the stab. They are challenged to face their own scars – or shall we call them imperfections, because this is what they ‘judge them to be’. They may not come right out and say it, but I believe – I know – they are thinking and feeling it.

    Beautiful Dance with words that hold so much Truth. Just beautiful. When we acknowledge those scars, that is when the healing begins. Thank you for writing this duet. It is powerful. Love, Amy
