Man Child…Still

74DF8A8A-1CF3-4F1B-BD45-25A90478E711A poem inspired by the image (I borrowed: Author unknown) above:

The Man Child …Still

The contours around
his eyes are cracked
with smile tracks.
They hide internal
frowns, a well-worn
mask.

Speaking to please,
he engages in many a
tiresome task for
accolades and praise.

Still, his inner man
hears the voices of dread,
feels dad’s hands hitting
his head. He wants to run,
but no where is there to hide.

So he fakes strength
and a life of fun.
”Anything goes” for
ecstasy and mirth.

Still, his inner child
dreads the break of day
sits cross-legged,
head buried as in sand,
wishing he would die or be
blown away.

Still…

Hi, pleased to meet you! I am Deborah Esther, an Inspirational writer, author, speaker and transformational strategist. I am first and foremost passionate about humanity; yes human beings and our mental, psychological and physical health and how human beings impact the big wide world in a variety of ways. I write about everything and anything that I feel strongly about. I do so from the perspective of one who has experienced certain things in life and observed others go through. It is also from the perspective of my Christian faith as a teacher and minister of the Gospel. We project who we are to the world and who we are affects how we relate to one another, so I conclude that I want to be the best version of who I am predestined to be, so as to make a difference to one or more people. My mission is to aid others have the same outlook in life; develope and demonstrate compassion through engaging with causes that matter and are important to humanity. I express myself through writing articles, quotes, poetry, spoken word... I pray and reflect on biblical scriptures which I may share. I have developed self development and therapeutic creative writing programmes for workshops. On my blog, I also share articles, videos and quotes from other sources..., some may ask for donations, fundraising or volunteering in worthy causes. Let’s play our part for a better world; be daily transformed so as to be world changers. I also hope to read and learn from you all in our inspirational blogosphere 😃 God bless Deborah Esther x
