The Child in your Mind


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

    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

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
