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.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
