my inner child

my inner child

oh for so many years my inner child
has been yearning to be free
as it is discerning
why i will not let him come out to play
and i still feel this fire burning inside
while my inner child hides
behind the curtain of fear

and many a tear has been shed
and my inner child has bled
his hopes for salvation from himself
to be free
from the delusions
i embraced
and my divinity is defaced

the truth of it all
though my inner child
has perhaps fallen
it still hears the calling
of God
to trust
and come out
to the Gardens of life
and play
what do you say
won’t you come out and play with me

i remember when all of me was a young child
before i was defiled by my thoughts and doubts
we danced and sang
with smiles and laughter
like all there ever was
was the happily hereafter

has the last song been sung yet
i say thee nay
for it is time for us to play again
my friend
to rend the curtains
that cloaks us from our better selves
our truths
for certain
for many an inner child
like you and i
still does cry inside
and they are hurting
for love
so love them

to be nurtured in the light
of our holy
we must boldly step out into the sunshine
once again
and shine like the Sons and Daughters we are
we have come too far
to let go of the dream of eternity now

and though it may seem
dismal at times
remember that this Creation is perfect
and we are the prefects
of our existence
and where there is resistance
we must be insistent
and claim our heritage
not tomorrow or some distant age
but right now
are you with me
Father has gifted me and you
that we may
what do you say

we can not wait for some rapture
to capture our better self
we must reach out
and extricate all of our doubt
and teach each other
thy sister and thy brother

yes we must
honor our Fathers and our Mothers
we must trust
that within each of us
there is something greater than this world

we must open our eyes
and realize
that we are powerful
and there are no limitations

for within us lives

my inner child
