hey guys I was thinking about this inner child thing today and it kinda hit me hard. this poem came to me thought I would share

Donít hate This small one that used to be you
I only did the best I knew given the load I carried then
And remember as you think of me, that crying was not allowed
The pain was just to be absorbed
Be brave, remember?... I was a big boy before you were a man
Donít hate me please for trying to make sense out of insanity
I simply didnít know the rules were wrong
The definition of strong, the meaning of tough
How was I supposed to know these things?
Maybe I was gullible, I didnít know deceit then
And the places where I went I had to go
And please donít hate me most of all for love of he who once was you
Believing it was not your fault, there was nothing I could do
To save you from the pain you feel today.

I read this a few days ago...read it again this morning...
your wording is very precise for a MS.

You need to know that you are cared for as who you are.

I hope that your heart & soul which are crying out for this personal satisfaction find much of this thirst and hunger filled soon my friend...

Peace

I did. It came to me at work as I was trying to process my experiences at a weekend of recovery. so many powerful things happened there I was over whelmed it took a while to process it all.
