"Inner Child"

Please release him;
let him show.
He's hiding behind
the wall of shame
he's come to know.

Don't deny him
his pain
he's carried with him
all these years.
It still remains.

Hold him in your arms.
To him be true.
After all
he's growing up
inside of you.

Show him compassion
Give him praise.
Maybe he'll succumb
with these
gentler ways.

So he's unruly,
and he's a bit wild.
But to love yourself
you must first love him,
your inner child.
