A Blemish

Give me something to cover my shame

If only we could cover our mistakes as easily as we camouflage a blemish

A little dab of mending cream to the areas of our lives that have been tainted by our foolishness

If only all of our offenses were just simple blemishes, easily repaired

Unfortunately, there are times when we inflict so much pain that we might compare it to a hollow necrotic wound that festers and rots until the bone is visible

Unlike a simple blemish these injuries cut deep and leave lifelong scars

Healing may take years

So proceed with thoughtfulness, taking care not to maim or destroy others

Let the only impact you leave behind be one of grace and gratitude
