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

The more I heal the more I realize how comfortable I am being on my own. Not because I don’t want to be with someone, but because I’m okay with being alone. And that’s a victory I never knew I’d have.
