La Calaca a Day - #29

The Healing Time

Finally on my way to yes
I bump into
all the places
where I said no
to my life
all the untended wounds

the red and purple scars
those hieroglyphs of pain
carved into my skin, my bones,
those coded messages
that send me down
the wrong street
again and again
where I find them
the old wounds
the old misdirections
and I lift them
one by one
close to my heart
and I say
Holy Holy.
