Indelible etchings
paving way for scars
to cling to later
when all has turned to stone
except our own heart.

Cold. Bleak. I probably know what the etchings mean/say. *sigh* Simple truths that touch a life now and then. Throw that rock in the lake, and plant a flower in its place. :o)
I loved this Barbie. You hit hard with emotions in this piece. Very nicely done. ~Pam

B, you really know how to say feelings with words. WOW! Now, I feel stupid, because of what I just said. *blushes* Too early in the morning. ~HUGS~ *S* C

Whoa..! A huge idea captured in a small jar of a few words..! I love the idea of the etching tool leaving a mark for a pain or scar to hold on to you by..! Just leaves the mind spinning off into new directions..! Nicely done my friend..!

Wow this one hit like a rock right between the eyes! Volumes spoken in these few short lines! I'm loving finding these short peices of wisdom by so many of the writers here that I love.

Wow Barbie this is profound....few words, much said...hopefully the heart does not turn to stone, but in some cases even the heart finds it necessary to survive....sad, but telling of how scars tell the tales of where we have been.

wonderful writing as always ms writelady!

We all bear scars from this life. I prefer to think of the scars as lessons learned along the way. It is the ever resilient heart that ultimately sees us through it all. Beautiful writing Barbie! Henry

"Scars to cling to later...." is a wonderful description of utter hopelessness! It isn't uplifting, but you have made your point with precise definition. Michael
