poem ~ I Am A Child

I am a child
and I want to learn to walk,
So I make it my aim
even before I can talk.

I am a child
and I want to be like you,
And go and do
all the things that you do.

I am a child
and I wanna be more,
Then just a fifth wheel
to your circle of four.

I am a child
who wants you to be apart of my life,
I don't want to have to consider
everything over twice.

I am a child
and I want to be an adult,
So that I can pretend
that I love this life that I wrote.

I am a child
and I long to be more,
But I never tell myself
that I shouldn't try for more.

I am a child
and my heart just wants to be,
Loved and accepted
for just being me.

I am a child
that was raised to live in fear,
Not knowing that anything different
could ever be near.

I am a child
that has a heart to be loved,
And accepted for more
than the identity hub.

I am a child
even at my very core,
As I search to live this life
authentically settling for more.

I am a child
and forever I will be,
Seeking the purpose
of living intentionally.
