It’s Going To Be Okay Child

It's Going To Be Okay Child

It’s going to be okay, Child

You can stop crying now

I know you feel alone in this world

Like you have no one to turn to

It’s not your fault

That no one was there

When you needed them most

You are not alone anymore

Because I’m here with you

And together we are going to heal

And love each other

As we deserve to be loved.

About The Poem:

“It’s Going To Be Okay Child” was inspired by my most recent therapy session. My therapist and I have been talking about wounds and the wounds we carry from childhood. As I grew up, I abandoned my inner child and left her behind. I did what I had to do to survive. I don’t know if that makes sense to you but it does to me.

And recently, I have been trying to reconnect with my inner child and heal the wounds I have from my childhood. I plan to talk about this a little more in tomorrows post. Heads up to those of you who don’t care, don’t read tomorrows post lol.

“It’s Going To Be Okay Child” was inspired by that and conversations I have had with my inner child.

What did you think of this poem? Are you in touch with you inner child or did you leave them behind as you got older? Let me know in the comments because I would love to hear from you. Or simply stop by and say hi.

  1. Very nice post, Pooja! Awesome writing. Every word has a meaning.👍👍👍👍👍🥰

    1. Thank you so much! 😊

  2. Beautiful words. I’m looking for a new therapist myself and will have to start from scratch. I am rather ignorant of my inner child, feeling as though he has always been there. Please remember that I will always be a listener if you need me, here it Twitter. Keep striving, keep winning, good lady.

    1. Thank you so much. I wish you the best with looking for a new therapist. It’s hard to find the right one but I have no doubt you’ll find the right person for you. I think I changed like 6 therapists before I found this one. I’m also here if you ever need to talk.

      1. My psych recommended someone to call. Hopefully he is open and we vibe. Thank you, good lady. I have great respect for you.

        1. I hope he’s the right therapist for you and is able to help. Thanks, that’s really kind of you to say.

          1. Time will tell. Keep hanging there, friend.

              1. Always my best.

                1. That’s great, keep being awesome.

  3. I keep telling my inner child to like tomatoes. Hasn’t worked yet.

    1. My inner child likes tomatoes too much and refuses to eat foods without them…

  4. Hey, Pooja! I loved this poem! I never really thought about leaving my inner child behind until lately, but I guess I did. Life happens. Abuse. Lost innocence. Children. Jobs. On and on it goes. I did talk about this with some friends at YL and it was really great. I was able to speak kindly to that little girl and let her know that she will be ok.

    1. Thanks so much! Yeah, it’s easy to live our inner child behind as we get older and life happens. I’ve been trying to speak to my inner child more often too and am on the road to healing!

      1. Sometimes we just need to give our inner child the nurturing she never received. Our inner child can then heal and grow up into the awesome human we know she will be!

        1. Absolutely, we need to love our inner child the way we wish we had been loved as a child!

  5. Hey, Pooja! I loved your poem. And I felt last year, I connected with my inner child and healed things from my past that I didn’t realize I was holding on to. Now, I feel my inner child and I are one. So thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to read your next piece!

    1. Thanks so much! I’m so glad you were able to reconnect with your inner child and heal through past traumas. It’s important for us to live as one with our inner child.

  6. I don’t think of that time in my life as separate from my current self, but I do get your poem. To heal fully one has to heal from all the trauma

    1. It’s great that you never had that barrier. True, we have to heal from past traumas to heal fully.

      1. I did have a few unpleasant things to face in my childhood, but I think the loved of my late father kept me grounded in my being

        1. Yes, I’m sure losing your mother at a young age wasn’t easy but the love of a parent helps heal wounds.

          1. Very true my friend. When God takes one thing away He compensates with another.

            1. Exactly, He never gives us more than we can handle.

              1. Exactly right.

  7. I love this poem so much! ♡ ♡ Inner child healing can be hard work, but it’s good work! Going through this in therapy now too. 🤍

    1. Thanks so much! It’s definitely really hard work since we have to work through one trauma at a time. Glad you’re in therapy too and good luck to you with healing!

  8. I keep telling my inner child to be there forever!

    Look I’m growing old, this is sad reality, but I don’t want to stop loving certain things as an excuse of age.
    I love reading children magazine, I love doing things that people of my age may not want to do. I’m doing things that young me should have done.
    I’ve changed a lot, but I want to have that curiosity and happiness of knowing things for the first time.

    I do feel lonely many a times, it’s sometimes I never realised 20 years ago, but yeah it is what it is.

    Sending a lot of love to you and your inner child( ohh that sounds awkward, but you know what I mean) 🤭
    Things will be fine for dearest Pooja as strong confident and amazing PG will do just fine. 🙌🏻🤗

    1. And hey, after saying all that I almost forgot to tell you
      I absolutely loved that poem.

      You are so wonderful PG, great job 🤜🏻

      1. Thank you, glad you loved it!

    2. I’m getting old too and I need to hold on to certain things that I don’t want to lose as an adult. It’s not easy to remain one with our inner child because life discourages it. We all feel lonely sometimes. I’ve been feeling lonely a lot these days.


      1. Ahhh well!!

        I wonder what’s the solution to this.
        However, if you need a friend to share (everything but passwords), you can mail me or IG. Available to chat 🙂

        1. Thanks, very much appreciate that.

  9. A very touching poem.

    1. Thanks so much.

  10. a beautiful and deep poem, Pooja.
    that connection is needed to heal and glad you working on it 🤗🤍

    1. Thanks so much, yes it’s something I need to do to get better 🤗

  11. Wonderful, Pooja. ❤️

    1. Thanks so much. ❤️

      1. ☺️❤️❤️❤️

        1. 🥰❤️

  12. Absolutely love this poem. I’ve been reconnecting with my inner child as well.

    1. Thanks so much. Glad you’ve been reconnecting with your inner child too. It’s important we do that as adults.

  13. Comforting and self-assuring poem. 💗

    1. Thank you so much. 💖

      1. Welcome! 🌻

  14. Touching poem.

    1. Thanks so much.

  15. I am still my inner child! I never grew up!

    1. That’s the best way to live!

  16. I never left my inner child behind, but I made sure he grew up. I saw too many man-babies to want to do anything else.

    Did you change the way the comment box works? It looks different now to me.

    1. That’s great, it’s true there’s a lot of adults acting like children and not in a good way. Growing up together is a good thing.

      It’s not me, it’s WP making unnecessary changes again…

  17. your namesake has written a book called how we lied. chalice i think heard of her?

    1. Never heard of it but will definitely check it out.

      1. Her paternal grand parents emigrated from India to Canada. btw the most credible gupta was played by the late ricky jay in the james bond flick the world is not enuff.

  18. A very touching poem! Inner child healing and the connection feels magical once you accept the feelings and deep buried emotions it’s trying to communicate, it can feel scary and even overwhelming but once you slowly try to understand what your inner child truly wishes to communicate you realise you can conquer anything in the world. Amazing poem! Well done 🌻

    1. Thanks so much! It’s definitely daunting but it’s been nice to let go of the anger I’ve been holding on to for so long. It’s also overwhelming but I’m trying to heal one wound at a time.

      1. That’s great to hear!
        It’s overwhelming but with the awareness of acknowledging your inner child you’re finally creating space for the anger to be expressed
        I’m so happy to know you’re working upon yourself instead of shunning away the emotions!!
        Kudos 🧿🌻

        1. Thanks so much!

  19. Great poem. I’ve had a few counselling sessions but I’m coming to learn there are some differences between that and therapy so I’m looking into attending therapy sessions too one day. Hope your journey to reconnecting with your inner child is beautiful and insightful ✨

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, the two are a bit different and I find therapy makes a bigger difference. I’m sure you’ll find therapy helpful when you decide to go for some sessions.

  20. Children tell the truth
    Adults lie

    1. That’s exactly it.

  21. I really like the poem. You are on such an important journey. Inner child work is so important. Possibly the most important work which will carry you to all the places you want to go in this life. I am so happy you found a good therapist that you trust and are on this rewarding path. I said it yesterday but I feel the need to say it again today – you go girl!

    1. Thanks so much, I really appreciate that! I’m happy I’m able to do the work as well. I feel like I’m finally healing from things I’ve been holding on my whole life.

  22. i would say i abandoned my inner child while growing up, as it always seemed that there was always bigger things happening in life. I did so without realizing, until the adult years hit, then started to realize thats what I did as well. But it is important we all reconnect with the inner child, as its important for healing and growth. It’s good that your reconnecting too.

    1. I’m sorry you went through that too. It’s important to reconnect with our inner child for sure and it helps a lot with healing past wounds. Thanks.

  23. Awww Pooja this is wonderful! So glad you shared this with us. A good therapist will work wonders.

    1. Thanks so much and absolutely agree!

      1. You’re welcome!

  24. My inner child was an Adult Think-tank consultant and professional hit-man trapped in a child’s body. Now it’s trying to destroy itself by threatening to hide itself in a multiple personality disorder only known to exist in extraterrestrials from a bellicose planet where inhabitants are born adult and can fly bundles of comic books over skyscrapers in a single bound but are invulnerable to Kryptonite and gluten.

    1. Ah yes, gluten. The real kryptonite.

  25. My heart ❤️‍🩹

  26. Your poem hit home for me. It took me back to the place when I was a kid when things happened to me that shouldn’t have happened, but I got through it alone. Nice poem. Thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work.

    1. I’m sorry you experienced that as a child but so glad you were able to move forward. Thanks so much.

      1. You’re welcome.

  27. I do inner child work. It’s eye opening. Good luck. I’ll look for the next read.

    1. It’s so eye-opening. Thanks so much.

    1. Thanks so much.

  28. Thank you for sharing! I think most adults have had some type of childhood trauma unfortunately. Beautiful poem.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, that’s unfortunately true. We just have to all work on it I guess.

  29. A courageous post, thank you. This is an important aspect of healing from the past.

    Coincidentally, while it doesn’t specifically mention “inner child,” my post from today might resonate for you, Pooja.

    1. Thank you so much and I agree it’s important to heal our inner child. Wow, that’s interesting. Can’t wait to read it when I get a minute.

  30. I think I am still a child yet when I spend time with children I understand that it’s not true at all… they are so much more resilient and also optimistic, I love it. I spent a few hours with my students and thought they are so happy and carefree and walking on air all the time. I want to spend more time with them to get a bit of their optimism and weightlessness.

    1. Yeah, they have a much more positive outlook on life and haven’t been beaten down by life yet. It’s sad but we lose that over time. I want to become more like that again too. I hope we can both do that.

      1. Fingers crossed

  31. My fellow Jedi thank you for sharing your poem and experience with us. I am glad you are in therapy. It is interesting that you brought up child, I do not have a picture of myself before the age of 20. Jesus had helped me with so much past trauma which is why I wrote my book Jesus Understands Trauma.

    1. Thank you so much. I am so glad you have faith because that makes a huge difference and it makes it so much easier to let go of past wounds.

  32. I liked it a lot, thank you.

    1. Thank you so much.

  33. A very moving and encouraging poem, Pooja. Thank you for sharing! 💞

    1. Thank you so much! 💖

  34. Very emotive !

      1. Welcome 🙂

  35. Insightful poem.

    It’s okay to deal with our inner child because sometimes our inner child needs comfort, love, assurance and all so that we can face our adult/outer selves with courage/grace.

    1. Thanks so much. I completely agree.

    It’s a beautiful and very relatable poem! I weant through this pretty late in life (my 30’s) but it well describes something that I am still struggling with as I try to be bring them all fully togather again! I have found that my own inner child while hurt and in need of comforting, also has a potential dark side. It needed to know that it will be loved no matter what but also held accountable along with It’s adult version, and thay playfulness is something for all ages. It is always part of me and we are one!

    1. Thanks so much! I think all our inner child’s have a darker side and that’s where some of our darker thoughts stem from. However, when we nurture our inner child and love it the way it deserves that dark side begins to subside. At least that’s been my experience with this so far.

  37. I feel like currently I am living at my most authentic “inner child” self as an adult. I cry about everything and repel everything that’s not for me.

    1. That’s really great, I think it’s important to express our emotions when we feel them.

  38. Yes, my dear, it’s going to be okay. Keep working at it ❤️.

    1. Thanks so much! ❤️

  39. It’s a wonderful poem Pooja and such a gift you are exploring that and making room for her to come out to play. What inner child.. lol. It’s a tough nut to crack when you have been taught to mother the world but we need to bring her out to play without burden and responsibility ALL THE TIME. 👍🏽👍🏽👏❤️

    1. Thank you so much! So true, it’s really difficult to let our inner child out as an adult but so important that we do so 💕

      1. It’s always a pleasure to read and support you! Yes, I’m telling mine to be patient. It doesn’t like that. 😂
