THE CHILD IN ME

Struggling to leave childhood pain behind

In each adult

Lives a teen

Questioning

What might have been

Harbouring hurt

And confusion

Longing for love

And inclusion

In each adult

Lives a dream

Struggling

With self-esteem

Vulnerability

And oppression

Stunts one's growth

Impedes progression

In each adult

There is pain

Undisclosed

Ugly stain

Partial business

Needs addressing

Haunted aches

Need expressing

In each adult

Enfant terrible

Pain the same

Yet comparable

Experienced

Divergently

Yet suffering

To some degree

In each adult

Essentially

The child within

Must be set free
