Restitution

The day we lose our innocence,
The day we become confused,
A darkened threat of ambiance,
Grips tight a life misused.

Encouraged by our loved ones,
To leave our natural being,
Following a life of reruns,
Ending the life of seeing.

Seeking long and endlessly,
While memories slowly linger,
Wondering lost and aimlessly,
As pain absorbed by a stinger.

Longing for a child’s smile,
Something to remember,
Living in a state of exile,
Life’s long past September.

The day we lose our innocence,
The day we change our rules,
Forgetting our true essence,
Turning us into fools.

    We all lose our innocence, but hopefully this will be replaced by wisdom in the fullness of time.
