The Child Inside

By Ivette Rodriguez | February 27, 2023

The child in me is so angry

Angry that I was always the caretaker

Never being taken care of

But my child

My Id

Has a vengeful anger

A destructive anger

And it will burn everything in its path

But I don't want ashes

I want a Blooming, Plentiful, Garden

I’m tired of being angry

Oh so tired..

So I have to heal now

So I can lay child to rest

Because I can’t change the past

But I have the future yet to build.
