Until It Hurts...



















The child within
throws tantrums,
weeps, howls,
bargains,
bullies, torments,
turns malicious,
behaves in the most ungraceful manner-
is self centred.
and selfish.
wants everything- or nothing.

The child within is free. To break all restraints.
But the adult outside smiles-
until it hurts.
