My inner child cowers, confined by conformity
Yearning to be let out, unshackled and free!
Not contained and
Not restrained, she’d
Engineer enjoyment, frivolity and fun.
Raging and rebellious
Instant satisfaction, but no! Quietly she
Lurks beneath the veil of decorum
Dwelling in the darkness, sadly unfulfilled.

The image shows wall art. A woman is dressed in 1950’s style. A speech bubble next to her says, ‘Listen to your inner child’. There are cartoons and graffiti on the wall too.
