Wounded Warrior

Wounded Warrior

A Poem by C. Harter Amos

What happened

in the jungles of your life

that killed your soul,

leaving you un-whole?

Staring at the stars,

I know pieces of you

are in the billions of lights

I can never see,

but that I’ve been told

are out there.

I would hold you for a lifetime,

if I could dare to dream

of holding that many stars

against my breast

forever.

What a beautiful piece. Seem to be a lot of folks walking around with dulled or deadened souls. Very uplifting to see a piece that shows some understanding and compassion towards folks such as these and even bothering to ask, "what happened."

There are a lot of rhings that can destroy a soul, but the love you show to right the wrongs is as big as the cosmos. T
