Slivered

Am I too Lost to Be Saved by Princess_of_Shadows


Slivered spirits 
Caused by calloused hearts 
And closed minds 
Shine a light 
On our own shortcomings.

Very thought-provoking. I think I'd say that unless the calloused heart and closed mind is one's own, the light shines brighter on the shortcomings of others.

Sharp and piercing...the picture is also very telling ~

And in the picture, scissors and shorn hair. What a portrait you paint, between the picture and the poem, of a soul that requires salving.
