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.

  1. Love your words. Beauty in simplicity. Forgiveness the key.

  2. And a beautiful brevity it is ....

  3. Goodness knows I have scars, some won't heal. This is a very evocative piece for me. But I am a Plan B type.

  4. A powerful message in this beautiful poem Susie! An acre of wisdom in inked brevity!! I love it!!

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

  6. This is beautiful (and true), Susie. I love what it promises.

    Happy New Year (again)!

  7. This is beautiful and wise, and said so well.
