My Inner Child - A Poem

My inner child needs you to feel okay.

My Inner Child - A Poem

I was so small

So young, when I got hurt.

That even my friends

I had at the time

Couldn't pick me up.

When I was a child,

I dreamed of fairy tales and men on white horses.

Coming to save me from my dark home

Protecting me, fighting for me, caring for me.

My inner child, grasping at anyone who would give me any attention.

Telling me I'm pretty

I'm strong

I'm intelligent, I'm worth something.

But no one would calm my inner child like you did.

No one was as gentle as you.

Everyone else was rough, delusional, and thought themselves too worthy

Never took care of me the way you did.

Sometimes you made my inner child cry,

but she still wanted you there.

I fought with her sometimes, because my brain and heart would be in frenzy.

Even though my inner child was hurting more.

I was in a rut for quite some time.

Didn't know if I should truly stay

or look elsewhere.

But now I know.

My inner child wants you.

She's never wanted anyone else like she wanted you.

And I should stop wandering, and just start listening.

She was lost

But now,

Now, she belonged somewhere

And she's smiling.
