Lost Innocence

Lost Innocence

Lost Innocence

Wind whistling,
Snow glistening,
We try not to,
But we’re all listening.

Loud screams,
Bad dreams,
It’s very far,
But close it seems.

Sad day,
Lost our way,
All we can do
Is simply pray.

Innocence gone,
Life no longer long.
We may not know,
But we’re all doing wrong.

Joy lost,
The Holocaust.
We look to see
Hearts covered in frost.

Wars fought,
Sins taught,
Making mistakes,
Hoping not to be caught.

Not taking blame,
Pushing for fame.
As advanced as we are,
We’re still all untamed.

Too much pride,
Needing a guide.
We will deny it,
But behind lies we hide.

Hurting others,
Betraying brothers.
Many forgetting
To appreciate mothers.

Lies are fed,
Filling heart and head.
Through all of these years,
Innocent blood has been shed.

Children abandoned,
Lonely and stranded.
We’re all wasting the life
That we have been handed.

Taking from the poor,
We’re loving no more.
Fight to be free,
End up starting a war.

People starting fights,
No longer enjoying the sights,
While mere mortals are taking
Our God given rights.

Soldiers killed,
Void can’t be filled,
Pay close attention,
For pure souls have been tilled.

Need to find peace,
Work together like geese,
But greatest of all,
The hate needs to cease.
