Childlike

I admire you,
My child.

You tell the truth when we were too afraid to speak.
You cry when sadness fill your veins.
You love with all your heart even though love was not reciprocated.
And you dream the most beautiful dream your heart desires.

I was once that child.
Until I was told,
The truth that I speak were not pleasant,
My tears were a sign of weakness,
My heart would be broken if I barenaked
And my dreams were not practical enough for you.

How could we be so cruel,
To not have courage to live in a childlike manner,
And to kill a childlike spirit,
In every child,
In every man,
In every woman.

So let us be childlike!
To have courage,
To love,
To cry,
To dream,
To live,
To save our soul.
