So tiny…so frail
I see you hiding
Trying not to be seen
Trying to meld into the fabric
of the walls that surround your heart
So many things you’ve witnessed
Been privy to the monster workings of the world
Chaos all around you
You can’t make it stop
Yet you need to find a way to control it
Because you can FEEL it all
The energy rises up
and it’s real
It smacks you in the face
As a punch is delivered
It doesn’t matter
For they are one
I can see how you tried to protect yourself
I can see the strategies you tried to employ
The things you did to try not to feel
The way you tried to numb yourself
Make the feeling stop
And when you couldn’t get relief that way
You thought you could control everything in your path
You could plan for every possible event
Head off trouble at the pass
Because if you could prevent the problems before they happened
You wouldn’t have to FEEL the resulting pain
I know how sad you can be at times
Because you failed
because you weren’t able to prevent the pain
and then once the pain ramped up and took hold of you
you weren’t able to handle the pain
SO YOU JUST SHUT DOWN
I don’t have all the answers
But I do know what the problem is
and they say that is the first step to freedom
Take my hand and be not afraid
Walk to the light
The light of love
Vibrate at the level of spirit
The spirit that resides in you
The spirit that bathes you in white light
It is going to be okay
You are going to be okay
I promise I won’t leave you
and I promise I will help you any way that you need help

I love both the picture and the poem… I imagine this little girl is your “child within”…
Take my hand and be not afraid
“Walk to the light
The light of love
Vibrate at the level of spirit
The spirit that resides in you
The spirit that bathes you in white light”
Those lines are wonderful, confidence, courage, spirituality… congratulations Lorrie! This little girl is in good hands, YOURS 🙂 Have a nice week & take care & much love to you ♥
Thank you dear Fre’de’ric!! I love what you said…and yes…the little girl was me (is me?) and I agree with you that she is in good hands 🙂 Much love to you my friend….I am very grateful for your constant support and love!!! <3 <3 <3
Oh, this was so touching. You show such awareness of the process too many have experienced and continue to experience. My stepdaughter was really on my mind this morning, and I feel this posting helps me complete the circle of what I had been thinking about her. thank you.
Oh Kim!! That is music to my ears 🙂 We are all so connected that one’s learning can have a benefit for another….if it helped you in any way my heart is touched beyond words! My heart goes out to every little girl who starts to hide from her life…wish we could make it all better! <3 <3
Such tenderness and care in this post Lorrie. I can’t help but wonder if your child experienced a similar journey. And if so, I feel your pain, and courage to guide this little girl back to the light and safety of your love. Prayers, blessings and hugs my dear. <3
Hi Brad! Yes…the little girl is the “every” little girl…but the one I see most clearly is the one that I was. It’s kind of amazing Brad…but you asked the other day what I learned. This post speaks to the learning…to the understanding of how I got here…the things I did (do) to cope and the examination of what works…and what I may want to change because it sometimes causes more pain. This kind of self discovery can be painful in itself…but the benefits far outweigh repeating old habits that are detrimental to our emotional and spiritual health. Much love Brad!! <3 <3
Congrats on your courage and insights Lorrie. You are a gift to her and I. XD <3
This was especially wonderful. Good work.
Thank you so much!! That means a lot to me as I honor the person I see through your posts!! Have a beautiful Sunday! <3
I think this would work well as a song, you just need someone to write the music 🙂
You just spoke to my heart! I often have thought that some of my words should be accompanied by music as I love, love, love, songs!! I have ZERO musical ability though (unless you count singing at the tops of my lungs while driving!) Your lips….. <3 Thank you so much for putting such a beautiful thought out into the universe! Hope your Sunday is magical 🙂
So glad you liked that idea, I did hesitate to write it out…My Sunday has been very magical and I hope
yours is too 🙂
I’m glad you wrote it…thanks 😉
I love this Lorrie! 🙂 Such a soothing comforting thing to sing to little Lorrie 🙂 <3 I love how you take care of and comfort that little girl within 🙂 <3 <3 <3 You are so beautiful! 🙂
Thank you dear Trini!!! Those are really beautiful thoughts and such a great compliment to me. While I just read them I thought how luck Little Lorrie would have been to have Little Trini as a friend to roam the woods looking for fairies and rainbows!! Sounds like a wonderful meditation that would make love blossom!! Much love to you from my whole being!!! <3 <3
Hello dear Lorrie! This is beautiful and deeply touching. Thank you for providing such a wonderful canvass of food for thought. Blessing always my friend. 🙂 <3
Oh Sylvia! ! I have not seen you lately. ..I pray that everything is wonderful in your world!! I will go check now…sometimes I suddenly stop getting emails of posts…hope that is what it is! Thank you for your so very beautiful words. Sometimes I hesitate to go so deep…and then I stop myself because I know no other way! Much love to you dear friend! ! <3 <3
Hi there Lorrie! Your words and kind spirit generate such beautifully positive energy. How could anyone not be moved by your upbeat aura. Unfortunately, I have not been blogging. Still working my way back from a period of “bad weather” so to speak. Hopefully, I won’t be much longer but it’s nice to know that your are there with your awesomeness and encouraging words. Much love to you also my friend! <3 <3
Oh…Sylvia…I am sending you so much love….and beautiful healing energy!! I know how the bad weather can step in and knock the train off the tracks…seems so many people I know are going through a storm at this time (myself included!) I pray for you to have relief from whatever it is and that you will be back spreading your beautiful thoughts and words here soon!!! Much love…many blessings!!! <3 <3
You are the sweetest Lorrie….a beautiful soul. Thank you so much. I need all the healing energy I can get and I receive completely. Yes, it does seem as though so many are going through storms right now! Lets send them all positive energy while reserving some for ourselves to help us weather our own storms. It’s so comforting to hear from you. You certainly bring the sun to some very dreary days! Much love to you also and abundant blessings!! <3 <3
That vibrant sensitive and loving little girl shines now through you Lorrie. She did such a good job to survive in a world of big people who didn’t understand.
Love to all of you <3
I wonder if you will feel the raw emotion your words just created in me, Val. I spent a lifetime being strong…it has always been when someone showed me kind tenderness that I lose it! Through the tear in my eyes…and the tears my heart cries…Thank You! <3 <3
I understand. Me too. Our girls would love each other!!!
aww so comforting Lorrie and filled with such tenderness 🙂 You are inspiring <3 <3
Thank you so much dear Neha! Your words are so encouraging to me 🙂 Hope everything is super in your world! <3
You’re very welcome my friend, you are an inspiration 🙂 And Yes, they are and hope the same for you too!! <3 <3
This is so poignant Lorrie! Unfortunately this is true of so many – but you heal with your words – thank you for sharing!
Hi Anjali…Thank you so much! It gives me a nice feeling to think that my words could help someone. Have a blessed Sunday…thanks for commenting! <3
I’m sure this post touched all the little girls within who need healing. Thanks Lorrie.
Hi Karen…Thank you! What I wish is for a world where all little girls and boys are washed with love and comfort!! Thanks for commenting. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! <3
Oh my friend, this world is a cold, harsh place. I remember how I used to have so much anxiety. As you already know, I am a Christian. So, for me it’s very normal to pray daily and read my Bible. One day, a few years after I made my spiritual decision, I was going through such a hard time emotionally and mentally. I used to wake up in the morning, have my morning quiet time of prayer and Bible reading, and then head off to work, many times with the peace of God in my heart. By the time I would get home, I was so full of anxiety and sometimes in tears, thinking I had done something wrong, or that God was upset with me. Then, all of a sudden, one day God just showed me, it was like He was saying to me, “Staci, you fear me like you feared your earthly father.” That was an amazing revelation for me. You see, I grew up with an alcoholic father, and he was verbally abusive. I lived in fear of him. So that really affected me and my formation. I was a mess by the time I had entered my 20s. Now, I no longer go through that. Thanks to God. I guess you can see that He was, and still is in many respects, my psychologist. What better psychologist the have eh?
Many blessings and tons of love and light to you Lorrie.
Oh Staci…I’m so sorry…and on the other hand…so happy to hear that!! Obviously, I don’t like to envision you as a little girl being abused by your Dad. Every little girl should have the love and protection from a good daddy. But to hear how you turned to our heavenly Father and you were not only embraced but you were enlightened. ..and loved…that is the GREAT part. I’m so happy for you 🙂 and I am so grateful that you felt safe enough here to share this. I send you so much love and I thank you for your friendship 🙂 Much love <3 <3
You’re so sweet Lorrie. I really appreciate you.
Love and hugs.
The feeling is so mutual Staci!! 🙂 <3
Lorrie- your heart shines through your writing…it is deep, powerful, and full of beauty! Praying you have a wonderful week 🙂
Thank you Julie! Your words touch me deeply…I am so humbled! Thank you for your beautiful prayers 🙂 Hope you will also have a super week. Thanks for your support. ..and give your girls a really big hug!!! <3 <3
This is a first class, elegant post!
Oh…Mino! Thank you dear heart! I loved listening to your music today. Much love <3 <3
I’m so glad you finally walked into the light. Thank you for sharing your heart and your pain. Hugs and love, N 🙂 <3
Dear Natalie….Thank you 🙂 I am so amazed at how life works….and I am so grateful. ..for every piece of it! I love to see your beautiful face appear here because I so look forward to your words. Have a wonderful week! <3
Oh how sweet of you, Lorrie! I pray you have a marvelous week too. This was a great testimony and I can see God working in and through you! Much love, my friend. 🙂 <3 <3 <3
Oh Lorrie, you could have written that just for me. I relate to every line in the poem from a tender place deep down in my soul. Thank you for this work; I love when we can share our vulnerability and empower each other to heal, grow and LOVE!!! You are amazing and so very special. Have a wonderful week sweet thing!
Lisa…wow! Thank you! I’m honored to share the vulnerability. ..it is a place of truth. I’m also a little sad that it speaks so deeply to you 🙁 But I know your heart is full of love which means that you have done so much healing and I pray that you continue on your journey surrounded by love and truth. Much love to you <3 <3
Thank you Lorrie. I am grateful for the teachers and the lessons of my youth. They serve me well as a mother, wife and woman. I am also grateful to connect with a wisdom and strength that fosters that perspective. It is a curse and a blessing! It is both painful and motivating. I always seek a better way to navigate life than the example set for me. Much love right back at you honey!
I wonder Lorrie how many of us have carried that broken little girl inside of us for so long.. We have had delve deep to find her broken little soul to hold her hand and bring her back into the light.. Making her aware of the love and making her feel worthy of self love again… A road so many have to travel.. I am pleased I found my own 5 yr old self.. And found Me in the process..
Brilliant.. I mean BRILLIANT post and poem.. xx
I think probably more than I would want to know, Sue!! I’m so happy you found yours and that by helping her…she helped you <3. Here is a collective hug and clearing energy to every little girl who is still lost…may we help bring them all home! I so appreciate your wonderful words Sue…and I'm so grateful you shared. Thank you for being here! 🙂
A Mega (( Hug )) returned 🙂
Absolutely beautiful, Lorrie! Of course, I’ve come to expect no less from you…
:)…no pressure!!! Thank you…you know I respect your opinion. Waiting for my sister now 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a beautiful Monday!! 🙂 <3
Aw yes…”Da Sister!” You two, (or three if Da Momma is included), have a marvelous visit!
We’ll talk soon.
Wow this is so beautiful, Lorrie. “As a punch is delivered Bones crack His…yours It doesn’t matter” – these lines literally spoke to me in the-voice-i-have-for-Lorrie, it did, I just love every line ’cause I can relate to all of this, every word, I can see the little girl as me and this poem is like a song from you- a friend who truly cares and knows what it is to be who we are and the strength it takes to give up on certain memories – ‘you weren’t able to handle the pain, SO YOU JUST SHUT DOWN’ yes I do that, you know even know time and again I find myself scribbling in diaries no one will ever read and tell me that “You are going to be okay, I promise I won’t leave you” but you did, as you always do. You’re such an inspiration, my friend, in ways i can’t comprehend and I love you for always being there for me. Much love, Lorrie, you matter a lot. <3 <3 <3
I will ALWAYS be there for you!!! On that you can count on…and I promise you will be okay…you really will be okay!! You know that I feel so close to you…it is almost as if people. ..no matter how far apart in distance…become much closer because they both remember the same things…had the same kind of experiences. I know we ALL are connected. ..but I think those of us who lived the same type of lives…feel that connection sooner. I worry sometimes that a poem like this could hurt someone like you rather than help…and that would be the only reason that I sometimes think not to share. But then I think how much your words help me and I think it is the right thing to do. Much love to you…hope your week started off beautifully! ! <3 <3
I will be too! Maybe a little late like for replying to your response but…ah well things have been going a bit crazy at home BUT I will always try my best, Lorrie! <3
I'm very happy to hear that my words help you because so do yours and a great lot! It's true what you said – those who have lived similar lives understand each other sooner and sometimes better. It's important that we have such connections in life so that what we say is indeed understood by the person listening. Thank you for sharing this poem, Lorrie. I feel closer to you. <3
🙂 Smile….and tears of understanding!!! Thank you! <3
impressive and emotional, Lady Lorrie… <3 kids have neither past nor future, they live and enjoy the very present… it's not our case, as adults… do hope and wish someone wonderful and big-hearted takes you/will take your hand and brings you/will bring you love, peace, serenity… take care of you, stay healthy and positive! friendly thoughts and HH = huge hugs… <3
HH’s Right back to you Me’lanie! Thank you so much…I am working very hard on myself…I am a work in progress 🙂 but I am so aware and that is the first step! Thank you for adding and for being here…I appreciate you 🙂 <3 <3
Sweet Lorrie I just wonder how many can relate to this beautiful poem, I know I sure can. I was thinking as I read…now how did Lorrie know so much about me? 🙂 I know there must be hundreds or even thousands who can read this and think it is about themselves. It is inspiring and healing to know that we are not alone in what we have been through, are going through or will go through. You are such a blessing! Hugs
Hi Mags!! Thank you so much! It does sadden my heart that so many could relate to these words on a personal level. I’m so grateful for your words …they bring happiness to my heart. If I could help even one person heal it would mean so much to me 🙂 I hope things in your world are wonderful! ! <3
I love how genuine you are. I think we’re all walking around with our “child” inside – sometimes her/his giggle comes out, other times their scars. It’s funny you know, we know we’re them (or were them), we recount all of it, even what our reflections looked like in the mirror all those many years ago – yet, it’s almost as though we’ve become our own mothers. We’re now the senior of the child within us. With enough love and the wisdom we’ve developed while becoming the older versions of ourselves, we can not only heal our inner child, but play with it side by side.
I genuinely love how you are you.
Love & Light Dear Lorrie. <3
Hi Kim! Wow! I just love what you wrote…it’s so true! That is what life is about I suppose. We grow older…hopefully we GROW…and we can have love and compassion for the “little” one we once were. I feel so sad for the people who can’t offer the love, guidance, protection to their little selves. They are missing out on so much love…so much life. Thanks Kim…I so appreciate you. Hope George Girl’s surgery was a wonderful success! ! Much love <3
Tears from me, Lorrie for you and all of the “Little Girls” who suffer in silence. Your poem so resonated with me today because there is another little girl I know of who is struggling right this very minute. Yet, I am powerless to help her except through prayer. God Bless each and every one of them.
And tears right back Kim! I’m so sorry that you know a little girl who is struggling. ..I will add her to my prayers as well. It is so hard for me to see children suffer. I know I had several Angels…earth and spiritual. ..or I never would have made it. Sometimes all a child needs is to have at least one adult in the world who shows true unconditional love…who shows them how beautiful they are. Just one concerned adult is sometimes enough …I know you are that person for this little girl you speak of…I know it! And I would bet that you wish you could do more…but you have to know that sometimes you just can’t. So I send a prayer and energy from deep in my heart…from my very soul…for every child who needs a champion! ! Much love Kim <3
Thank you so much, Laurie. Doing all my best. Love to you.
i know this story. you present it so clearly! i wanted to hide in the corner while i read your words…hiding because i didn’t to get caught….lovely writing.
Hi Grace…Thank you so much for your very kind words. I’m glad that this post touched you. It is very personal and I sometimes wonder if it is appropriate to share, but then people like you say such wonderful things and it makes me happy 🙂 I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
I believe very strongly that this message should be shared, the silence is the greatest harm…. thank you for your bravery!
You are so kind! I appreciate your support 🙂 Have a super week!
Beautiful Lorrie, thanks for sharing with all of us!! Loved it, great concept and done very well 🙂
Thanks Zachary! I’m happy that you liked this one. It just as easily could have been Oh…Little Boy! I think the inner child in all of us needs some comfort and healing! I appreciate you…hope all is well in the southern hemisphere!!! <3 🙂
