    It's not what you say or do Child
    People have open, untended wounds
    Carelessly bandaged and carefully hidden
    From all the prying eyes..
    ..and even the most innocent things
    said or done could trigger the most
    Painful of memories of rejection
    Heartbreak, helplessness, anguish
    In people who haven't done the healing.

    Even the touch of softest silk would
    Cause pain and discomfort
    to someone who has been burnt.

    —burning and healing.
