Now what and who I have turned into?


I was born a magical kid. 

I once stood out among my friends. 

I once was playful. 

I once could think and act fast.

I once was proud of who I was and
it showed in my smile.

I was energetic and laughed easily and often.

Over time I believed that I needed to fit in
to be liked by others.

Over time I believed that I needed to dim my inner light
to be accepted by others

who have lost contact with their own magical self

Now what and who I have turned into? 

I am consumed by shame, guilt, grief and sorrow. 

I walk lifelessly
with a bent frame.

I carry lots of baggage
keeping me from playing.

Instead of hearing my childhood laughter and enthusiasm

I hear myself saying...
“Oh no”, “I can’t”, “ don’t wanna”.

I speak with a soft voice
so I do not offend anyone
or attract attention to myself.

Today, I resurrect my real self!

Today, I walk through the seemingly long illusion of pleasing others.

I now use my strong voice to define my boundaries.

I now use a strong voice to express my truth. 

I now take pride in my laughter and playfulness.

I now have dropped the heavy baggage.

I now stand tall and bright. 

Welcome to wise, curious, playful
magical me.

A very welcome write that others should read. Especially those poets who seem to want to always take us down with their continual personal problems.

I love this poem. It is magnificently shining into my eyes. You have described the taking away of "Zen" in a child, which society has perfected to unconsciousness, and you finish your work of art with revelation and jubilance. It sings. ~~ Diana

this was most interesting to read...leaves one wondering what circumstances precipitated the change from 'joyous' to 'lifeless' and from 'lifeless' back to 'joyous'
