Licking My Wounds

by Anne Di Baguette

I find I’m not as strong as I would have myself believe

I suspect you may have known this from the start

For this tortuous road Emotion seems to offer no reprieve

Sometimes it’s difficult to run with half a heart


When one day seems eternity how will I manage weeks

Struggling with this emptiness inside

Too many questions left unanswered, who knows what another thinks

Or who would guess this sadness I must hide


Years ago I might have fought this building barriers of hate

But I’ve learned this just diverts the pain I feel

We both have our reasons, mine is choice and yours is fate

So I’ll lie down, lick my wounds and heal


I’ll find I’m even stronger then I ever would suppose

I suspect you’ll have expected this as well

For this winding path of sentiment may straighten as it grows

Just where it leads to one can never tell


We both had our reasons, mine was choice and yours was fate

Now it’s time for me to lick my wounds and heal
