soul wounds

they say their soul is wounded.
whatever does that mean?
the pain is deep;
too deep to tell –
so deep and not so clean.
they tell us that their soul hurts.
we do not understand.
how is it in the world of ours
we wound our fellow man?
they cry alone and deep within;
though they utter not a sound.
soul wounds are rampant in our world.
inside me a wound is found.
Christ is our Great Healer.
He always takes a frown
and works His wonders deep inside
until the frown is turned
upside down.
