The Little Girl Inside Wants to Play

The little girl inside wants to play 
Every day. I listen. 
There are many suggestions. 
Anything boring is out. 

Anything not fun is discarded. 
Life is short. 
This might be my last day. 
My last hour even.

I will spend it with a child. 
I am not particular which child. 
Each one has a unique perspective. 
Each child is delightful and insightful. 

They have not been socialized yet. 
They still believe in Magic. 
Even the sad ones. 
There is always a glimmer of hope. 

I make my move trying to find a child. 
To inspire me, to aspire thee….
To delight and improve me in a new way…
Depending on the one inside sometimes. 

My own inner child when another child 
Cannot be found in time, and I need
Joy and enthusiasm now.
Luckily, she is always willing

A whirly twirl-y child, she is my
Peter Pan self, my voice of non-reason,
My heartfelt soul essence, and she is
Always ready to play!

I always let her lose, for she needs to whirl around and skip and hop and sing and stuff.

Hey Caren. I enjoyed this write my friend. I have never lost that child within. Some call me childish, but I change that to child like. I laugh and smile all day and I rarely top singing. Me I like me like this. I guess you would be close to this too. Nice write my friend....Peter

I depend on my child-like qualities, for they help me get through the horrible times and the sad times too, and they keep me happy and young when I could be sad and melancholy.

You have to give yourself PERMISSION to play, and you have to allow at least three to four hours a day for yourself to play - doing exactly what you have always wanted to do . It can be a hobby, a talent, or something new you want to learn. Start by making room for play in your life, my friend.
