The Fight Inside

Two voices talking at different times,
Neither aware of the other,
One is old, and one is not,
I do the best with what I’ve got.

The one not old comes out in secret,
She cries and yells for what she wants,
She speaks to anyone she thinks will be nice,
She speaks, she never even thinks twice.

But she is easily hurt inside,
The tears, so many, she cannot hide,
The fears learned from years long passed,
Her presence needs attention, that will last.

The old voice not aware of the young,
Unaware of all she’s done.
The old voice thinks that she’s gone mad,
From all the thoughts that she has had.

But now the old must talk to the young,
Take care of all the hurts been done.
Give her love you know will last,
Give her love to heal the past.

The old voice needs to know when the young,
Is taking in something that’s been done,
To know to act in a different way,
To be aware of this each and every day.

  1. The 2 selves in conflict, thats a battle that is most difficult to resolve, as each side hangs on, this is why letting gi of the past is an uphill battle.

    It can be done, and you are doing it, one day at a time, you will overcome.

    1. Thank you for your support. I am dealing with the child that still lives inside me, and her perceptions and actions to things that the adult me is encountering. I am trying to face situations from the right perspective, rather than having the child’s perception dictate my feelings or actions.
