To the Young Child I was.


I feel you inside me.

Scared, alone, naked, shamed.

Hurt by someone who shouldn't have done it.

I want to reach out to you,

Hold you in my arms,

Protect you from whatever hurt you,

Tell you it'll be all right.

You don't believe me, and why should you?

All you've known is pain.

Separated from those who love you.

Hidden in walls of sadness.

I wish that I could say it will be easy.

It won't, my son, my tiny man.

You have lived through so much, though.

And you are loved.

You are cherished.

You will be whole again.

You will be needed.

I'm holding you in my arms.

And your tears are mixed with my tears.

Hush, my child, it's all right.

You don't have to be afraid anymore.

You have me, and I'll protect you.

You won't be alone anymore.


Peace, my brothers. Hold your hurt selves tight. They don't have to be alone anymore.

Scot,
If we could all take our inner child and do that for them. Just hold them and mix our tears with there and show them we will keep them safe. Just let them know we love them and we understand there pain. Good job speaks right to my soul right now.

Despite my efforts not to, I cried. Those are beautiful sentiments, so sad that they must exist at all. And, as much as we need to protect the child inside, for those of us who have children of our own, let us protect them from ever having to walk down this dark, scary road.
