Often in life scars that are left behind from past experiences, hinder us from finding a path forward. Or finding that place where the heart feels at home. That forms the basis of this poem. It is an attempt of mine to try to set a poem or more in time around such a topic. This is one such attempt.

As always I welcome any comments etc that you may feel is fit to make. I hope you enjoy this little piece of work.


The cold hard heart stranded
Within the limits it is handed. 
Hiding from that which warms
The scars felt in darkened storms.

The warmth that follows the lovers
Breaks them free from the covers.
That loves embrace sets free to be,
Where their heart desires to see.

The scars that hinders often binds
The heart from sailing where love finds.
Still the beating heart that seeks
To find loves new port without leaks.

Dare to wander through gates of fear
To find what the heart desires to steer.
Find fields of green to calm the troubled,
Soul when storms clouds doubled.

    As I Grow Old
    I Fill My Cracks with Gold
    My “Scars” ARE Stories ReTold

    …the Japanese don’t discard broken; they fill the cracks with gold to remind them of the importance of experience…

    1. The point of this poem is NOT to highlight any scars that I may have OR to place it on a window as such. BUT rather being the state of mind SOME poeple in society DO in fact struggle with. My poetry does NOT always carry my own experiences BUT that which I see and meet each day. Thank you as always for your comment
