Inner Child #Poetry

Soft moonlight

casts a pale glow

across her small face-

She now knows.

She is breathing deeply

& that ripple of a memory

of another time and place

flows through me.

Her calm isn’t because

of any rescuer,

Stronger than a mountain

and steady like a river-

I know her well-

because

she

is

my

self-

Her newfound peace

is as light as air //

& her hero was me.
