a wound sealed over

a scab where there was pain
a wound sealed over
but that doesn’t mean we are healed
that takes the hand of God
forgiving our neighbor, letting go,
releasing their hold on our lives
otherwise just a Band Aid
a papering over of festering flesh
pus filling the vacuum
where they could be healing by God
