there is a child inside of me,
who cries for freedom and wants to flee,

but holding them is the bigger voice,
made of logic, and grown-up choice,

the child wants to run and play,
the adult can't, and has to stay,

but why not balance between the two?
so both are happy through and through?

because they are not bound by you or me,
but by the shackles of society.
it sucks  being an adult sometimes. I haven't written a poem in a while... but lately I've been feeling trapped... so here you go.

I haven't read much of anything by CS Lewis, but this reminds me of one bit I have. "When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."

But that balance of being grown up without losing the child can be so difficult.

I like this. It gives voice to a lot of the stuff I'm struggling with right now.
