How To Heal A Wound

By Titilope Sonuga

This is how you heal the wound

cleanse it with salt water
it is the only way
to release the poison

the tears will come
let them

you will need to apply
a healing balm

the only cure for hate
is more love
be generous in your application

Let the wound breathe
do not cover it until it
festers and rots

speak it then let it go
let it go

Do not ever pick the scab
