The Innocent

Innocent, brand new.....
the children
braving the world.
Torn from our warm
watery beds
brought forth into a place
of strangeness, of coldness
of expectations
of what we should be.
Hearts filled with hope
of love, of caring
crushed again and again
from lack of understanding
of what life will hold.
So, the innocent become
so innocent,
naivety changing places
with discouragement
and loss,
and yet....in that moment
of loss, begins the search
towards enlightenment
and renewal
of love.
