Science is for those who learn; poetry, for those who know. — Joseph Roux, Meditations of a Parish Priest
To be a poet is a condition, not a profession. — Robert Frost
Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry. — Gustave Flaubert

~ Inner Child ~

I think I know you
Complexities abound
Riddles and magic
An enigma, throughout

The world hated you
Belittled your spirit
Yet you stood back up
So bold, and so fearless

I feel all your trauma
You've endured much strife
I gave you much comfort
In the darkest of nights

In patience, I waited
When you closed the door
To pains of the past
That which hurt to the core

And now here we dance
You're wild and you dream
In ideas and in joy
Free thought, creatively

In mirrors you twinkle
My youth in aged eyes
Inner Child, How are you?
Only Love, no divides

For Carry on Tuesday 13.
For whatever reason, this just flowed when I looked at this weeks prompt. It applies, and it fits me, but it's just weird what inspired it lol. It was a very quick write..less than five minutes.

I always find that the pieces written quickly are more often than not the best ones. This is proof! Excellent.
