The “Manager” sits in the driver’s seat

Enjoying the power she has.

Her goal is to get the work done.                         

There’s no need for pizzazz.

Unappreciated in her role,

She’s too exhausted for fun.

Failing to nurture her weary  soul,

Her shoulders carry a ton.

The “Self” needs to take control,

Organize the others  well.

But pain caused her to retreat.

She fails to act and tell

The upset parts to take a seat,

 To  listen to every one’s needs,

And  find a good solution.

Her job was to plant the seeds.

 

The “Protector” keeps the others safe,

And adapts to a changing world.

He is on constant alert;

Deflects any dangers hurled.

He appears when others are scared.

He comes to their stanch defense. 

He supports the parts who  hurt.

When needed, he’ll build a fence.

 

The “Critic” keeps the parts in line,

And wants acceptance for all.

She adheres to community rules;

And wants to belong, stand tall.

If carried away by her need to belong,

She can say hurtful things.

Children are hurt the most,

By  pain that criticism brings.

 

When pain becomes too great,

Or discomfort is brought

By all of the parts involved,

The “Distractor”comes in,

With relief that is sought,

And parts are distracted within.

If avoidance is used too much,

The problems won’t get resolved.

 

“Child Parts” know of rejection.

 They want attention and praise.

They vie for consideration.

They fear people won’t stay.

They love special  occasions.

 Birthdays rank high on their list.

They carry so much sorrow.

They only want to be missed. 

 

The “Self” needs to take center, 

And conduct all of the parts,

By giving nurturing and guidance,

To those with conflicted hearts.

She leads with gentle persuasion,

And  models acceptance for each.

She’s full of compassion and caring,

She enables the others to reach.
