The Inner Child

My inner child was trapped suspended in trauma and shock
But no one ever knew or cared enough to unlock
It has been in my later years
I finally let out the full sadness and tears

Abusive childhoods do real life changing harm
People live their lives in turmoil and alarm
Afraid to get close to anyone or really trust
Left to find out about an inner trauma was a must

My brain was damaged half alive
But to get it all back I continued to strive
At sixty it awoke from sleep

Emotions buried so hidden and deep
