The Child Within (Poetry)

What to say?

What to say?

I guess I’ll say

That it’s okay

It’s okay

To sometimes feel

This way


To feel bored

To feel despair

To feel alone

Though others are there


It’s okay

I love myself

Up and down -

My journey to health


Flying high

Up in the sky

Crashing low

Ripped and re-sewn


I am here

I’m here with me

I’ll cradle my wounds

I will not flee

From the child

Deep inside

The child that dreams

The child that cries

The child that believes

That prayers come true

The child that hopes -

The adult that rues


I have grown

And will grow some more

Ever learning

To love my sores
