The Child Inside

The Child Inside

A Poem by Baby Ricochet
"

Baby Ricochet is having one of his moments of sanity again

"
At heart I'm just a simple man
with a loving child inside
With everything I've seen and done
Somehow he stayed alive

For that much i am grateful
A child can feel life's joy
In the simplest of moments
The world as one big toy

Flirting with a lovely girl
Watching the butterflies
Intellects can mock and scoff
Cause they don't get why

Because it's stupid simple
There's nothing to ponder on
The joy of life is in the moment
and the moment is always gone

We struggle and we live in pain
We blame everyone who took part
But in the end it doesn't matter
Only you can mend your heart

A task so monumental
No grownup could survive
It's not for us to even start
It's for your child inside

Author's Note

Baby Ricochet
Every so often I have these kind of insights. If I had any sense in my head I'd do something to encourage them to grow. I gotta admit though I get the biggest charge out of the simplest things. That's got a lot to do with me maintaining my sanity.

I have the feeling the message comes through not only because of the meaning of the words but also because of the tone you have used, synchronized rhythm indeed. I love also the line 'the moment is always gone' and the sun-spilling lack of any tragedy, it certainly brings out the child in me.....

This is pretty well written and exceedingly tame.
Coming from you I wish that it wasn't this tame! Really flirting and watching butterflies!!!?

haha. how nice that you have a child inside. I don't know how I feel about the concept... But you wrote this nicely.

Good job.

I understand what you say here. It seems like for me the inner child comes out most of all when I am writing. The grown man hides him too much in the everyday.

I've missed reading your stellar rhythmic poetry my friend,
Being here, knowing this, inner child in you is still there does me good.
What a wonderful piece, very heartfelt. You nailed a very good subject here.
