Heal Thyself?

The fact of the matter is, we all try to heal ourselves.
You are gauze, he is tape, she is stitches...
we take. we take. sadly.

But (and here we've come round again) we bleed out, and need attention.
It hurts to be the healer
It hurts to be the sick
and we've all been our share of both.

So empathy will be our bandage...and a modicum of mercy.

I have been the child with the cancerous childhood. I still attempt the surgical removal of every tumor. I have no blade. I grab your hand and poise it to slice. It's just the way of things. But I love you no less for it.
