This is an inspirational song that I wrote back in 2004.

Through A Child’s Eyes
(2004)

Through a child’s eyes I see the worries
Through a child’s eyes I see the glories
Through a child’s eyes I see the wisdom
Through a child’s eyes I see the freedom
That did not seem grand when I was younger
So I stare into distance and I ponder
How the youth has gotten so mature
In this life that’s nothing close to pure
Either way I hear their painful cries
And I see things through a child’s eyes

Everyone not an adult is deemed a minor
And the things on their minds that grow finer
Just don’t matter to the grown ups nowadays
Even though there’re lots of smarts in their ways
And so they’re left unheard and inside tattered
With their many kinds of dreams being shattered

Through a child’s eyes I see the worries
Through a child’s eyes I see the glories
Through a child’s eyes I see the wisdom
Through a child’s eyes I see the freedom
That did not seem grand when I was younger
So I stare into distance and I ponder
How the youth has gotten so mature
In this life that’s nothing close to pure
Either way I hear their painful cries
And I see things through a child’s eyes

Just because they aren’t twenty-one years old yet
Doesn’t mean there’s nothing wise inside their head
They can teach us things we never knew existed
And the things that might turn out to be twisted
And the little stories that they wanna share
Are important telling us their lives are not bare

Through a child’s eyes I see the worries
Through a child’s eyes I see the glories
Through a child’s eyes I see the wisdom
Through a child’s eyes I see the freedom
That did not seem grand when I was younger
So I stare into distance and I ponder
How the youth has gotten so mature
In this life that’s nothing close to pure
Either way I hear their painful cries
And I see things through a child’s eyes

We should pay more attention to the minors
And stop thinking that they’re nothing but whiners
Cause they know what they’re talking about
It’s just that our minds are clouded with doubt
And that’s why we do not seem to have a clue
That the things that come from them have any value

Through a child’s eyes I see the worries
Through a child’s eyes I see the glories
Through a child’s eyes I see the wisdom
Through a child’s eyes I see the freedom
That did not seem grand when I was younger
So I stare into distance and I ponder
How the youth has gotten so mature
In this life that’s nothing close to pure
Either way I hear their painful cries
And I see things through a child’s eyes

 If we only put ourselves inside their shoes
We would see their different point of views
And the many decisions that they make
Are not always deemed to be a piece of cake
Yes they too have to struggle for their rights
And they find themselves amidst many fights
Both the inner and the outer battles
And just how their busy mind rattles
Trying to figure out the answers to the questions
And the different consequences of their actions
Their lives aren’t always filled with ease
And everything in their lives is not a breeze

Through a child’s eyes I see the worries
Through a child’s eyes I see the glories
Through a child’s eyes I see the wisdom
Through a child’s eyes I see the freedom
That did not seem grand when I was younger
So I stare into distance and I ponder
How the youth has gotten so mature
In this life that’s nothing close to pure
Either way I hear their painful cries
And I see things through a child’s eyes

Through a child’s eyes I see the worries
Through a child’s eyes I see the glories
Through a child’s eyes I see the wisdom
Through a child’s eyes I see the freedom
That did not seem grand when I was younger
So I stare into distance and I ponder
How the youth has gotten so mature
In this life that’s nothing close to pure
Either way I hear their painful cries
And I see things through a child’s eyes

I find your song most meaningful, Lena. I can attest to the fact that a lot can be learned from children and youth; a lot of adults have forgotten too quickly how to be more like them. That is why I am not insulted when people say that I never "grew up." A very fine song; thank you for sharing it. Love and best wishes to you,

Regis
