A Child's Eyes.

Updated on April 8, 2011

All is within a child's eyes

Look into a child's eyes
for therein lies
all that we give up
when we grow old
~
The lilting dancing gleam
of an untainted fire,
burning with the desire
to explore and uncover
all that waits ahead
~
The eagerness
for tommorrow
that creates the
daily pretending to
already be there,
playing house or
soldier or doctor
in make believe
~
The complete lack
of condemning  judgement
on those around them
just that steady gaze 
a studying gaze
they share as they
discover you..awaiting
your first words or smile.
~
The incredible innocence
and unquestioning faith
that is so lovely to behold
but so often misused
by the evils among us
~
Sparkling, shiny eyes
eyes unlined by years
or crinkles from
countless expressions,
of joy and rage,
hope and fear,
tears and laughter.
~
Children giggle and squeal
without inhibitions
without worrying about
what others might think
it is less taxing on flesh
~
Grown adults control emotions
scrunching up those muscles
and making creases
where once soft planes
were unmarked and pure
~
We also hide so much
behind masks of
our own making,
disguising what
we really mean,
even though the
false faces
are usually
so transparent
~
They know that playing
relieves stress...
something most
of us stopped a
long time ago.
The simple act of
doing something silly
for no reason at all
except to just have fun
deletes all the tension
that a day brings
~
Imagination is
in full bloom
in the deep pools
of their liquid eyes,
swirling around
and changing
what is normal
into magnificent creations
~
We were always
and often
told to grow up.
Perhaps that needs
to be re-thought.
Perhaps we simply
need to grow back
what we lost
on the journey
to here...and become
all the better for it .
