Quel Dommage


A   L   O   H   A  !
Isn't It A Pity by Billy Preston on Grooveshark


" Children show scars like medals.
 Lovers use them
 as secrets
 to reveal. 

A scar is what happens 
when the word
 is made flesh."

Leonard Cohen 











" Every stress
 leaves an indelible scar,
 and the organism pays
 for its survival
 after a stressful situation
 by becoming a little 
older. "

Hans Selye 












" Adopting the right attitude 
can convert a negative stress
 into a positive one. "

Hans Selye 













" If you want others to be happy, 
practice compassion.

 If you want to be happy,
 practice compassion. "

14th Dalai Lama 












" I see the potential 
for a new world
 being born in front of me
 and all around me,
 and I feel the only way
 to bring that potential 
into being 
is to know myself. "

Gary Zukav

Each of us humans

 has been damaged.
scraped knees, hurt feelings,
and more.

Each one of us.

There is:
 Unknown Damage,
Unacknowledged Damage,
 UNDERSTOOD Damage.


Some cannot see
their own wounded places;
Unknown to themselves
they fester
 into more damage-
to themselves
and to others.


Some of us, and I am one,
have run from our scars.
Thinking we needed to be special,
Perfect,
 to be worthy
we run from our
 Unacknowledged. 


To look, to accept, to just

BE

 with our damaged selves
allows ever-polite 
Compassion
to arise.

Emptying ourselves
of excuses
has welcomed her.
