The Child, The Witch & The Dragon
Inside there hides a little girl
Who used to like to dream
Of prince charming and waterfalls
Hot chocolate and ice cream
Deep inside a power did rage,
The world lay at her feet,
The shoes she wore tramped hard and heavy
No secrets did she keep
She could have it all, she knew
Just keep the fear at bay.
Boldly charging without hindsight
She would own the world today!
But the witch within brought wisdom forth
Providing clear hindsight,
The dragon roared, the child cringe
And her soul prepared to fight.
To find a balance among all three,
That would be the chore,
Hang on to innocence, cherish wisdom
While letting dragon roar.
Forget the follies and broken hearts,
Appreciate lessons learned,
Throw away self-doubt and loathing,
Allow the tides to turn.
Embrace the child with loving light,
Hold her close and hard,
Allow the witch to give direction
To your dragon’s charge.
The power still beats deep inside,
Along with all my wisdom,
I am the child, I am the witch,
Protected by my dragon
