The Child In Your Mind - Poem by Egal Bohen

Let the child
In your mind
Come to the door
Sometimes

For that child
In your mind
Is a symbol
A sign

That will
Take you back
Through
Indelible time

To a truth
That you lost
In this world
Where you wake

When you came
To be adult
With an ego
To slake

    Let the child in your mind play,
    And to your heart say,
    You are on the right way. (Report) Reply

    I think if you keep the child in your mind Egal, it keeps you sane as you reach maturity. You can still see the world through 'rose coloured glasses' and enjoy it. Sincerely Ernestine (Report) Reply

    Well, to be honest with you., your poem felt to end too soon.., Yet in a way., that might influence one.., to want to read onwards..,

    With Respect,
