“Visiting My Inner Child”

By Tabasom Eblaghie
Registered Clinical Counsellor

“I’m scared!”
I know you are love,
We all are but you’re not alone
One day at a time
One hour at a time.

“I want to cry!”
Go ahead and cry love,
Then we’ll breathe again
Moving towards gratitude
Moving towards acceptance.

“I feel so trapped!”
Many of us do love,
Let us stay safe and secure
Focusing on others
Focusing less on self.

“I feel so weak!”
I will hold you close to my heart love,
As we gaze upwards, asking for protection
Emerging stronger and resilient
Emerging confident and assured.

“I feel calm.”
Go ahead and rest love,
This too shall pass & when normalcy returns
We will rejoice and laugh longer
We will appreciate and love deeper.
