Symbols to heal

That place within
The body
That is always
Trying to do something.
Stress falls upon it
In ways that wreck
The ability to do
What usually is
So easy.
A symbol painted
Upon that area
To say how
The body will
Feel better
Is created between
The painter
And the dreamer
Seeking the healing.
To say it is magic
Is to forget that
It takes imagination
To rebuild a city
Just as it does
To rebuild our bodies.
The magic is about
Thinking of ways
Around the problem
That is causing pain.
The magic of the symbol
Takes effect
When we believe
We can do what we can.
