by Red

When the scars fade

and the memories sink
beneath the skin of everyday,
the anger falls away
and the world of sun melts soft to shade

The world is less of a minefield,
more a hill of wildflowers.
Some may call them only weeds,
but you know. That's all a heart needs
as the past is finally sealed.
