The Work of a Carpenter

Wounded Tree

You bear scars where life carved lessons into flesh,

but gaping wounds testify to your strength,

not your weakness.

They call you Victor,

not Victim;

Overcomer,

not Overcome.

For deeper still than chiselled fate

are the  grooves whittled into

outstretched palms,

naming you one of the Chosen –

the work of  a

Carpenter.
