Inner Child – A Poem

In search of a fantasy child
Wild in joy, undefiled
Mild in emotion and pure
The door always open for more
Sure and velvet kind
Blind in the mist yet still fine
Time not a death but an aid
I’ve strayed and I’ve lied and I’ve paid
Yet stayed on my journey to you
True a bird in a cage when I flew
Through all ungainly I lurch
Birched by myself for my quirks
In search of a fantasy child
Wild in joy, undefiled


The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  1. Mike, this is WOW. So mcuh beauty in these lines.

  2. I am glad to see that others find the joy in your writing as I do. Though only new to the Panda flock (or should that be Jungle?) I am pleased that I have entered and in doing so appreciate the Wordsmith that you truly are. 🙂

    I can’t receipt from memory either. I really enjoyed this. Thoughtful, lonely but hopeful, so many emotions blended together. I certainly couldn’t have written something so complex when I was 20. Great work.

    You’re welcome, Mike and yes that’s very true!

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
