Child Like by Natasha Bartley
When did I realize I wasn’t a kid anymore, you ask?
I have yet to understand the concept.
A construct used for power and control.
Power and control.
Perhaps there is some sense to the practice.
The child is one filled with light
A pure heart
An open mind
Children without fear
The child lives forever
The child is within
For all of eternity
The body and the mind develop
The soul and spirit remain the same
I meet my inner child
When I am present
With my soul
My child is of light
My child loves
I sit with her
I learn her
I embrace her
I become her
So to answer your question,
My life has not been a lead up to the moment
Where I enter “adulthood” and say “time to settle down”
My life is the power of a pure heart, filled with light
My life is compassion through an open mind
My life is trusting
My life is forever, for all of eternity, childlike.
