Ah there you are hiding in the dark corners.
Running from cover to cover.
I see you.
I know your skittish and frightened.
This is all very new, very strange.
You were comfortable and safe.
Had all your defenses up and in good repair.
So proud so safe …and so alone.

You survived a lot. You were tougher than me.
You protected me and made me at least feel safe.
I love you for that and thank you for that.
But now it is time to put all those things away.
Time to tear down the wall.

I know this is hard for you
but the wall must come down now.
Time for me to be free.
Walls kept me safe but
Stunted my growth.
Time to grow. Time to be strong on our own.

Come, trust me. I am big now and safe.
Take my hand. It will be ok.
Don’t run away. I won’t hurt you.
You will become a part of me now.
I will be stronger with you and
You will be stronger with me.

Together we will change.
Yes, it will hurt some but
You will not be harmed though.
And I will not be harmed
We will be better, stronger,
No walls, maybe a few defenses.

Finally we will love and better
We can be loved for who we are together
Me.. big, grown up and strong
You.. small, clever, cute, playful,
And soon...neither of us scared anymore
All the Lies vanquished by the Truth.

That's a really good poem with a lot of solid ideas in it. We sometimes think we have to listen to our Inner Child and that's more or less it, but in reality it's the adult in us who has to lead and keep the little one safe. He will learn to trust us when he sees we have strength for us both.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)
