I once was a child

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

I once was a child where the world seemed so small

When all that surrounds me was big and so tall

When darkness and light well they fought in the night

Till morning would come and the world would turn bright.

I once was a child with nowhere to hide

Facing the world, not looking to fight

The battle began when all had seemed lost

I had to step up, but what would it cost

Looking for answers to questions unknown

Not thinking about the seeds I have sown

Till many years later it all came to light

I put down my sword and I gave up the fight

I asked myself questions about who I am

The answers I found well they weren’t worth a dam

I continued to ask until one patient night

The answer came flooding so clear and so bright

I knew all along, I just had to listen

And open my heart to the truth that was given

In stillness with trust and with pure honesty

I am found, I am free, I am not lost to me
