Come Find Me: A Letter to my Younger Self
I owe you safeness.
Sometimes the feeling of sadness falls like raindrops. Easily at first, before it all comes pouring down. I try to hide in my memories.
The memories of my childhood, but there’s nowhere to run to.
No safe place to escape.
I know it’s something you yearn for.
I know it’s overbearing right now.
Sometimes rain must fall.
I owe you peace.
The chaos of yesterday can take a toll.
You deserve no stress of tomorrow.
Whatever fault is not yours to bear.
A clear sky is near.
I owe you growth.
It is necessary for tender care, for flowers to bloom.
You’re a flower in the concrete.
Roots tangled. But not stunted.
I owe you happiness.
You’ll find me under the stars dancing.
Where the moon light illuminates across our face.
Everything I have is because of you.
It’s meant for you, for us.
We lived for the hope of it all.
The chaos no longer taking a toll on our mind.
Where our dreams are coming to fruition.
Where we’ve found peace in the mundaneness of tranquility.
We are always together, we are one.
Please hold out to meet me, I’m near.
Come find me.
A big wow! your letter is so unique! It is not a letter more like a poem meant for your younger self. Older you see the desperation of younger you and have grown stronger. it makes me want to go back in time and speak to my younger self. very inspirational. I love how you danced with your words in this.
Faith this is so sweet and something we can all learn from. We all need to remind ourselves to give all versions of ourselves happiness, growth, peace and a feeling of being safe. Thank you so much for sharing your poem. I look forward to reading more from you! Thank you for being a part of The Unsealed family. <3 Lauren
Your poem is very touching and profound. I hope you write many and know that your writing style is powerful.
Though it seems to hold a tone of sadness/impatience, it gives hope and something to look forward to for the satisfaction of one’s inner child. I hope everyone keeps them in mind as you have done yours. It’s difficult in this day and age but imperative to do so. They’re the reason we are still going forward in life and where most of our habits, desires, and sometimes trauma stem.
I hope you write some more, I’m looking forward to it.
Hi Faithe thank you so much for sharing your poem. Its a sweet reminder to me, to remember that the past version of myself is still with me and needs to feel safe. I’ve struggled with trying to erase my past self instead of trying to make her feel safe and comfortable. I’m realizing today that giving myself grace and forgiveness is so necessary. Its really encouraging to read the progress with you made, making a safe place for your inner child to strive and feel loved. Id say your letter would be ‘just what the doctor ordered’ in my case. Thank you so much for sharing <3
Faithe I loved reading your letter to the younger version of yourself. I thought it was so unique how you chose to write the letter as a poem. I also really enjoyed the message of your poem. I thought that you spoke about the message in a very interesting way through the use of metaphors. Each stanza brought up a new topic however the central idea connected them all. Thank you so much for sharing!
