I See You

I see beneath your armour

A tiny child inside

Hiding

Terrified

Lost


The gangster on the surface

The rough diamond

Dangerous

Angry

Hard


A hurt little boy

Just a toddler really

Abandoned

Shame filled

Sad


Unpredictable

Running away

At risk

Threatening/Aggressive

Misunderstood


Take off your armour slowly my son

I don’t want to leave you bare

Vulnerable

Fearful

Without your protection


Let me in

I accept you as you are

Vulnerable

Needing to belong

Unconditionally


Lay your weapons down

Allow your heart to beat more slowly

Stop

Breathe

I’m with you


I know it’s a risk my darling

A very very big deal

I know you’ll pull me in and then spit me out again

I’m still here

I won’t ever leave you like the rest have done


Let us navigate this world together

Diluting the gangster

Melting your trauma

Into my arms my beautiful broken boy

Mending your broken heart.
