Releasing the Child Within You

I heard the Child Within You, laughing, crying, whining, pouting and shouting, threatening to do harm to self and others...

In a voice barely audible, I heard the Child Within You, whimpering, sobbing, and seeking that attention that no one seems to give you anymore..

That Child Within You wants to grow and the route you are taking is too slow...

Listen carefully to that Child Within You...

Until you take care of the needs of that Child Within You, the person that you are striving to be, will never be.

Find the Child Within You and savor the memories when things were simple, when pain would go away, when laughter came easy...

When the Child Within You grows up, the adult in you will be able to stand up and stay up!

Watch the behavior, attitudes and actions of those who never gave the Child Within them permanent satisfaction.

Watch for unprovoked outbursts, apathy and selfishness , take center stage , while mating with rage...

Being aware of the child within helps us to know ourselves better, our vulnerabilities and what makes us happy. Nice poem.
