Inner Child

She cries

Despair overcomes her.

She yells

Frustration envelopes her.

She laughs

Hysteria conquers her.

She yearns

For someone to love her.


Many ask –

What’s the matter?

Even more don’t care.

Unable to answer – she too wonders

She craves the strength

To meet their prying glares.


As she wanders,

Curiosity surrounds her.

A desire to understand

Floods her very being.

As she tries to touch

The child inside her.

She asks herself –

“What’s the matter little girl?”
