The Healer

Published April 15, 2022 by tindertender

The old healer said to the soul,

It is not your back that hurts, but the burden you carry.

It is not your eyes that hurt, but the injustice you see.

It is not your head that hurts, but your thoughts.

It is not your throat but that which you dare not tell.

It is not your belly but your soul that cannot digest what is happening around you.

It is not your liver that hurts, but the anger inside.

It is not your heart that hurts, but love.

And it is love itself, which can heal all this pain, the most powerful medicine.”
