The Hurt Blocker

July 21, 2011

Trust your wound to a teacher’s surgery.
Flies collect on a wound. They cover it,
Those flies of your self-protecting feelings,
Your love for what you think is yours.
Let a teacher wave away the flies
And put a plaster on the wound.

Don’t turn your head. Keep looking
At the bandaged place. That’s where
The light enters you.
And don’t believe for a moment
That you’re healing yourself.

~ Rumi (of course)
