Healing is a Choice

And wholeness is not a luxury
For those that have never been hurt.
Building a theater to showcase your wounds
May earn you a moral high ground
But that is not a stage you can
Stand on for long.
Because soon enough,
The sores you insist
On leaving open
Will help you descend
To the same depths
As your offenders.
Victimhood makes for a flimsy identity,
No matter how righteous your cause is.
Healing is a choice.
One that really is
In your best interest.
