Innocence


Innocence stolen without my permission
Innocence gone without my submission

Innocence lost through another's plan
Innocence no longer for another man

Innocence turned to hatred and fear
Innocence gone, no man can come near

Innocence taken from a little girls heart
Innocence replaced by mistrust, you thought you were smart

Innocence dissapears like dew in the sun
Innocence faded before it's begun

Innocence obscured like a cloud over the moon
Innocence ripped away too soon

    Lost innocence is irreplaceable. People who smear it are but animals.
    The pains of losing 'innocence' eloquently expressed.10/10 from me. (Report) Reply

    Painful... The time may cover the wound, life may close it, but the scar is always there and each time a thought goes back, will hurt just like an open wound. If there is anything to heal such pain might be a soul filled with love. I guess you already have it. Thank you for share. (Report) Reply

    It is sad when innocence is lost to forced submission. What do we say to social culture where young ones are encouraged to loose it at the earliest. A thoughtful write. (Report) Reply

    Very clear on the topic of rape, a large issue in some places more than others. Psychological effects and formation into future described well. Nice write (Report) Reply

    innocence of a young child is removed physically and emotionally here. what do you think about removing their innocence through our own explicit behavior, exposure to visual media, encouraging them to drink and smoke and many many more. Innocence that is seen to be lost is well written here! the rest? ? ? ? any way I give you full marks! (Report) Reply

    I really love this poem. You wouldn't mind me using it as the theme for my school art project would you? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
