A scalpel, in truth, is just a knife.
But one is used to heal,
And one is used to harm.
The only difference
Is the hands that hold them,
How careful and controlled one is,
Causing the least harm possible,
Only what is needed to correct
The gentleness follows the intent,
To make better. To help.
While the plunging, jagged force of the knife
Always leaves scars.
