I was privileged to be interviewed by Jennifer Walker and Marty Fugate on Arts Talk WSLR 96.5 FM on October 12th. The interview describes my journey into poetry, art and music. Enjoy! Laurel
After All These Years
After all these years, I have knocked at my inner child’s door
and asked her to come out to play!
Although she was stored away and hushed into silence
for a very long time, she came out with a smile on her face.
We decide to venture out, to live life fully,
to blossom and become one.
When my inner child dances,
my feet move to a newfound rhythm.
When she steps on a crack, I step outside my bounds.
When she giggles, I laugh whole-heartedly and out loud.
When she loves, I become tender and open.
And, when my inner child sings from her heart,
I sing from my soul.
The child within me has been transformed.
As I hold her hand in mine, so have I.
