Smooth

I’m a shard of glass.
That piece that never fit.
Pain is a by-product
Life will smooth the edges.

The thorn in your side.
The strain on your back.
I find my way under skin.
Life will smooth the edges.

Internal wounds fester
Mind latches on sinking you.
Stream tumbles you away
Life will smooth the edges

You wonder why we hurt.
Waiting for you to let go.
Your needles still hung on me.
Life will smooth the edges.

Some day will come.
Freedom will ring soon.
You tumble away
Life has smoothed the edges.

  1. Very interesting. The repeating line is so effective. The pain, the sharpness of it, “life will smooth the edges.” I suppose that the things that hurt us, you say become less painful with time. Life smooths away the hurt, so it’s not as bad.
