Spirit of Truth Within


 

 

Child’s delight crushed early
Sorrow hidden deep
Will the real child stand up?

      If only:

      first, there were no “crushed children” and second, if we were taught the tools earlier in life – of “speaking our truth!” The journey’s path would be a little less rocky!
