Original: 16 x 23 Conte on Paper 2012 SOLD
"Pain is alive in a broken heart
The past never does go away
We were born to love
And we're born to pay
The price for our mistakes
Grace, she comes with a heavy load
Memories, they can't be erased
Like a pill I swallow, he makes me well
And leaves an awful taste
What if the only remedy for your greatest fear was to do the very thing you fear the most? That remedy is a jagged pill, it hurts to swallow and tastes bad in the mouth...and the healing is painfully slow. Is it worth the pain to overcome the fear?
Mandy has invisible scars that cut deep. Scars that have instilled a fear she has been trying to overcome most of her life. It is so easy to fight the very thing that is best for you, to see it as a symptom instead of cure. But Mandy is fighting and is not giving up.
This takes strength and faith that is impermeable.
