mystic child

(c) 2014 laurie childers

E D A Bomit 3 E (repeats throughout)

there’s a mystic child behind that wall

built by a young boy not yet tall

the mystic child safely unseen

enclosed and hidden by a worried teen

the wall we see is fortified

it’s tough and crusty on every side

brick and stone, muscle and steel

silent, solid, it cannot feel

maintained for years - need you ask?

by a man kept busy with this constant task

the mystic child who could see our wings

our shining hearts, and other things

that mystic child might have more to say

if you would let him come out to play
