Creative Child

Where have you gone
My Creative Child
I miss our play dates
Our never ending stories
Our colors and crazy shapes
I want you to stay
But often I send you away
I get hypnotized by a stranger’s eye
I drown in someone else’s dream
I get lost in another’s world
And what society expects of me
I reach for all sorts of distractions
I take a bite, I sip, I buy, I sleep
But nothing fulfills me as your Fire
Your absence is now so crystal clear
I don’t want to push you away anymore
Creative Child, rise
Come again, and burn me
Come again, and consume me
Delight me with stories
Paint me all colors
‘Cause I am ready
