poem

Be like a child

I am not a writer but that doesn’t mean I don’t write. Hers’s a little something that has been on my mind.

“Be like a child”

Be like a child and make a new friend

Be like a child and get to know them

Be like a child and ask why they are sad

Be like a child and ask to understand

Be like a child and point out a problem

Be like a child and learn how to solve them

Be like a child and come to a conclusion

Be like a child and find a solution

Be like a child and go out and explore

Be like a child and seek to learn more

Be like a child and stumble and fall

Be like a child and stand big and tall

Be like a child and dust off the dirt

Be like a child and learn to be hurt

Be like a child and know its ok to be afraid

Be like a child and know it will get better each day

Be like a child and start growing up

Be like a child and don’t give up

Be like a child and be scared of the dark

Be like a child and leave your mark

Be like a child and let your mind wonder

Be like a child and understand the word sonder

Because we got lost in our time and forget who we are.

We have to go back and learn to restart.

It is the innocence that blinds us from the negativity.

It is the media that opens our minds to cruelty.

Love like a child, that is the most pure.

Fight the pain, that we continue to endure

We are one country and we stand together.

Tough like a rock and delicate like a feather.

Much love

-Jocelyne
