There’s the Deep of That

Common culture often sees child’s play as an expression of something basic.  Modern psychology suggests that it is otherwise.  I am inclined to agree.

There's the Deep of That
by Michael Romani

There is as it seems
A world that allows for dreams
And the best way a child plays
Is one that allows a zillion ways

..To not arbitrarily predesign
But allows each child to refine
Their joy in how each learns
Exceeding self impositions to discern

For themselves outside the archetype
Moving beyond the push backed hype
Creating their own agency in preference
From the basic building blocks of reference

One step at a time making our better place
Each step of the way with smiling faces
Perhaps this is too much to dream
Or, maybe that's just the way it seems

But if we dare not let out the pleasure inside
How will it ever be that we learn to confide
In that which is our own truest voice
There's the deep of it, in that choice
