"these are the symbols of my tribe"

“Yes,I am an addict”
“I refused treatment then, I refuse treatment now”
“I will keep my wounds open”,I declared.

Then I said,
“These wounds are the wounds I want to keep”.
“These are the wounds I am protecting from healing”.
“These are the wounds I am keeping as your souvenir to me”

I shouted,
“These wounds are a precious gift, inflicted as a tribal tradition of love”.
“These are the symbols of my tribe”
“I refused treatment then, I refuse treatment now.”

Yes I can totally identify as this was my mantra for the first 36 years or so of my life. Old wounds can distract us from practicing preventative medicine on wounds that have yet to form.

Sometimes it's the pain which keeps you sane.

It seems the "Zakham's" are what Hazrat Ayub had,here we take literally.Healing is a process of foriveness .But then when you want to keep the memory alive, The "Nasoor" taza who but yourself will be in control of your healing. as to tribal tradition, this is intriguing,is it literal? I am inquisitive.
