Healing On

We’re constantly getting banged up,

it’s unavoidable;


we’ll scrape our knee,

bang our shins,

break some bones,

maybe almost die—


but we always recover.


Life isn’t about avoiding getting hurt—

it’s about how we see and deal with it.


Do we take it with a light heart,

and laugh it off?


Or do we pout and brood about it?


The thing about healing is

it never ends.


You just get better at it.
