Surviving Shadows

 


“Time flies over us but leaves its shadow behind.” ~  Nathaniel Hawthorne

 

Time doesn’t heal.

It is the spirit’s ability

to grow peace among scars

that keeps the heart

reaching toward tomorrow.

  5. Time doesn't heal, the spirit does indeed move you forward, the scars will always remain but, the pain will subside.
