    I don't know who coined the phrase, but my Momma been using it for everyone these days. The emotional fall out from Domestic abuse...Walking wounded. The broken hearted college girl who decided fifty X's was better than one, she no longer walking wounded...lying in a vegetative state. But before her heartache was discovered and uncovered she was a walking wounded. Thirty year old women who never knew what real love felt like, walking wounded, now they hate all men. Children who grew up without father's and never knew real love...Walking wounded. Fathers who never learned how to go back home and try again, Walking wounded. In the closet Homosexual's forced into a life of deception and pain...Walking wounded. Preachers preaching it but not living it, walking wounded. Rich but not happy, sentimental and even sappy, walking wounded. Favorite stars who hang from gymnasium bars to end their empty lives , were walking wounded. Soldiers on the battle field of confusion, fighting a battle they don't know why! Walking wounded. I don't know who coined the phrase, but we long for better days, it's more than some of us can take for goodness sake...Are we all walking wounded?

    Thanks for reading fellow scribes!

    They say you don't know you are wounded as bad you are kind of in shock so you keep walking and fighting and doing the battle thing, but then you look down and you see this gaping wound or maybe not that severe but you know you have been injured my Step-daddy told me it is a War terminology.
    Thanks everyone for reading.
