A bump on the head caused confusion,
An inner and outer contusion.
The outer was minor,
Not more than a shiner.
The inner brought life to conclusion.


We worry about broken bones from falls and the bruises we can
see, but it is what we cannot see that may prove to be the worst.

A child who falls may scratch a knee
With trickle there, of blood.
At fatal times, pierced artery
Will pulse from men a flood. 

And though we know the heart’s the den
Where fresh and old appears,
A wounded heart keeps all blood in –
That broken heart bleeds tears.
