Does it hurt?

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit. "Sometimes." said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."




Suddenly . . . I mind being hurt. I mind very much.


Then again . . . I don't feel particularly Real at this moment, either.



Lord, make me more than a velveteen rabbit. Make me Real. Whatever the cost.

Give me a beating heart. Give me deep breaths in my lungs. Give me a clear mind. Restore unto me the joy of my salvation.

Lord, make me more than a velveteen rabbit. Make me Real. Whatever the cost.
