I am but a child

Confined to adult walls…

Begging for mercy-

And punishment to stall.

Seeking fairytales

And no ending to fear…

Defeating any beast

Credits only to cheer.

Belief in a magic

Even logic cannot break…

Angels patiently waiting-

When life is more than I can take.

I want to find heart

In every vision I can see…

Knowing with confidence-

What will be – will be.

I want to grow up-

Without losing being young-

Offering all honesty…

Without using calloused tongue.

I want to always stop…

See beauty like there is tonight. . .

As chilled darkness grips a city-

In the distance dances light.
