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
