Softness as a Shield

With the inner child

for those tormented deep within

who are still on the playground

proving their worth

by decimation

 

With the inner child

my vulnerabilities spoken

kindness projected

but still not quite ready to give up

imposing my will

 

With the inner child

stay soft

the attack comes from

one who is too broken

coping with not being the best

by being the best

by besting another

 

With the inner child

stay soft

responding

not reacting

Don’t answer nonsense questions

Don’t play the game in  school

Say Who it is that loves them

 

Say it

mean it

or do not say it

better to say nothing at all
