The Window

What happened to the child in the window?
The time when a leaf brought satisfaction
If I only I could be confident and content
To wave happily at a stranger
The window is my barrier
From the life I want to have
Someday I will dissolve through the hard membrane
Into a nucleus of childhood delight
I will leave the other side of the window
For a better way and a better life
No child will stare at me through the window
I will be on the right side
