I was burned a long time ago. As children we don’t have more than a top layer of skin. And when I was naive and blinded, that burn went right through my flesh. It’s embedded deeper than I had ever known.
With years of self healing, that burn developed into a skin so thick only a diamond needle could pierce it.
Sometimes when you dig too deep, that nerve under that burn gets too sensitive and I react in the strangest of ways.
But I found myself a diamond and I’m trying to make sense of all that’s happened to me. I’m just trying to understand who I am, because I spent so much time alone accepting things as they were with it even trying to make sense of it.
