How Wounds Heal

You are not broken, you have been broken
They did it; you weren’t wrong
You are not broken, you have been broken
You have the means to heal

Platelets clot, avoid further loss
Block invaders creeping in
But wounds need air; to breathe
Oxygen forms scar tissue

A bright red sign, so you know where to stop
A bright red mark, that dulls with time
