    if i could take away the pain of the past i would.
    i would hurt everyone who has hurt you.
    i would turn the way of everyone who has turned away from you.
    i would restore all that was lost to you 100 fold.
    if i could...

    but when i think, deeply, within my soul... i would not
    for hurt is what has strengthened you and built character
    the abandonment has taught you how to love in tough times
    and loss has brought a deep sense of value to each soul you encounter.

    i am amazed that life so ugly, has birthed you. beauty.
    with scars and wounds and a beleaguered soul. beauty
    with your vulnerabilities and insecurities. beauty.
    with your failures, disappointments, and pain....
    beautiful you are.

    growth can be painful
    but if you learn from the ugly
    then you see the beauty

    great piece
