Those words

As a child open-eyed wide

The world, so immediate intimate

Shapes manifesting to sound

Colors vibrant illuminate

All is new and yet of old

Voices share stories told

Listen, listen, listening

To the words that hold

At a time, at a point

A shift occurs and molecules

Rearrange the voices heard

Are speaking strange

Shrieking through the fold

Negative discords

And these lies, these projections

Are seen and reflected

Taught through action

Absorbed by sensitive souls

Who hold onto those words

For all they know

Warped become their views

Of life, love, themselves

These happy hearts these

Children of love for love

Smile onward hurting inside

Cherish love but fester inside

Fearing themselves mis-

Understanding their strengths

Seeing beauty in others but in

The mirror only shame

Repeating the lies they were told

Repeating the lies they were told

Holding onto those words

Anchoring them down, too far,

Down and low hurting and

Feeling so cold, numb

Not recognizing they deserve

All the love – they give so much

And just as everything seems to

Fall apart unravel rapidly

The world seems dark

And no one feels happy

The light within, that spark we hold

Those words release and

They unfold raw

Vulnerable open heart wide
