At Heart I Am a Child

At times I publish some of my poetry from my poetry journal, Letting Go of Cockatoo Dreams.
Here is one of my poems.

At heart I am a child 
and the world and its trappings to much to bear
I am hidden 
as I pool my tears behinds eyes and ears

Hating the soul tear that rends my resolve to not cry
To not care
To hold my resolve 
 a broken baby doll

And then I remember
My father, God
who holds me gently and gathers my tears
Who reminds me while my sobs still hang in the air
Hush my child
It is alright to care
To fall, yet fly, 
under girded,
safely guarded 
In the shadow of His wings
It is there 
that I fly

At heart I am a child
learning to forgive, learning to forget
pressing forward unto a new way

At heart I am a child
His child
and today 
is a new day

Psalm 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book?
Psalm 17:8  Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
Psalm 59:16  But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
