let it grow?

i recently had surgery. i had a lump removed from my breast. turns out it wasn’t cancer yet, but – given time and allowed to grow – would have been eventually.

recovery was painful. every move hurt for awhile.

and i was left with an ugly scar.

pain sucks. but feeling it means i’m alive. being scarred isn’t beautiful, but it sure beats being dead.

what else am i harboring?

what hides in me… undetected, unconfronted, unexcised… threatening death to my soul?

is it worth the pain

the scars

that may come with release?
