Band-Aid

Sometimes you just have to rip it off,

you know?

Let it sting,

let it hurt,

let it set your nerves alight and break your heart.

Because if you don’t,

then how will you know

what’s below?

If you take a moment

to look underneath all the barriers,

will you see cancer in the making?

Will you see a life that you can’t run from,

a love that begs to be saved,

a limb that you can’t live without?

Or will you just see an old scar

that slowly

fades

away…

How will you know until you break?
