My constant companion

The voice in my head

Has always been a child’s

Delighting in simple pleasures

Flying off in many directions

Arousing interest in diverse things

I have wondered about it

Deplored it

Even been ashamed of it

Wondered if it was holding me back

From delving into weighty things

Like senior management

Boardrooms

From single-minded ambition

From obsessiveness

From high achievement

From enormous wealth

From power over others

Perhaps it was holding me back

And still is

I don’t know

But now I don’t need to know

I am no longer ashamed of

I no longer deplore

The child in me

I have given him

Maybe her

It doesn’t matter

Free rein

I allow myself to accept what I have always wanted

More than everything else

To love and be loved

To nurture and be nurtured

Everything else falls into place

I let the child take me

Because the child knows

Instinctively

The right amount of

Pride

Ambition

Love

Discipline

Self-love

To put my life in balance

To achieve equilibrium between my head and my heart

To see the limitless possibilities and potential of goodness

To make me content
